A convicted sex offender accused of taking up residency too close to an Oakbrook Terrace elementary school was being held Monday on $150,000 bail.
John D. Russell, 47, was arrested Friday and charged with failure to register as a sex offender within three days of moving to a new address and residing within 500 feet of a school, according to DuPage County prosecutors.
Authorities said Russell violated his sex offender registration conditions by residing in a home on the 17W100 block of Butterfield Road in Oakbrook Terrace, which is near Stella May Swartz Elementary School, 17W160 16th St.
Russell previously was convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old child, according to public records, which say he was 19 at the time. He remained in custody Monday and would have to post a $15,000 bond to be released.
The most serious charge against Russell is a Class 3 felony typically punishable by up to five years in prison. His next court date is April 2 in front of Judge Daniel Guerin.
