The news release says Lake in the Hills police began investigating after the victim, then 11, was admitted to a hospital for harming herself and suicidal intentions. She told police she was repeatedly sexually assaulted by Lucht when she was between the ages of 7 and 9.

Lucht gave a written confession to police when confronted with the allegations, authorities said.
