Officials said Tinajero knew the girl and that the activity took place at a Carpentersville home from August of 2010 through June 2012. Tinajero was charged with predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and with three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, and his bail was set Thursday morning at $150,000, according to court documents. He was being held at the Kane County jail. A judge ordered Tinajero to stay away from the victim if he posts bond. Tinajero's next court date is Jan. 24. If found guilty of the most serious charge, he could spend between six and 30 years in prison.
