Success - Article sent! close

A 27-year-old Hoffman Estates man pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a young girl, court clerk records show.

In exchange for Juan Tello-Martinez's guilty plea, a Cook County judge last week sentenced him to three years in prison and ordered him to pay $689 in fines.

Additionally, Tello-Martinez must register as a sex offender for 10 years after his release from prison.

Prosecutors say another adult walked in on Tello-Martinez abusing the girl last March.

Tello-Martinez, who has no criminal background, received credit for 332 days in custody.
