Authorities say Sims took photographs of the girls, videotaped the assaults and uploaded those images to a computer. One of the girls told a relative about the abuse after Sims tried to arrange for one of the girls to have sex with another man, prosecutors said.

Sims remains in Cook County jail on $400,000 bond. A judge also ordered he have no contact with victims.

Sims' arraignment is scheduled for Jan. 30 in Rolling Meadows.
