Police arrested Monte Tuesday after the 11-year-old girl disclosed the abuse to a friend and to school staff last week, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Moe Ahmad.

The girl told authorities Monte had abused her two to three times a week since July 2012, Ahmad said.

Monte, who has no criminal background, next appears in court on Dec. 4.
