Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Lesley Gool said Castillo-Vasquez, who knows a member of the 15-year-old boy's family, went Sunday to the family's home where the boy was alone. Castillo-Vasquez tried to force the teen to commit a sex act, Gool said. After the boy refused and pushed the defendant away, the defendant reportedly attempted to negotiate with the teen, offering him $20 as compensation, Gool said.

At the time of his arrest Castillo-Vasquez was on conditional discharge for driving on a suspended license. He has a conviction for the same offense from last year and from 2009, Gool said. He spent 200 days in jail in 2009 for aggravated battery with a weapon and received one year supervision for retail theft in 2007, Gool said.

Castillo-Vasquez next appears in court on Jan. 11.
