A 33-year-old Hoffman Estates man charged with sexually abusing a teenage girl in 2013 pleaded guilty Friday to aggravated criminal sexual abuse, court records show.

In exchange for his guilty plead to the Class 1 felony, Eduardo Mateos was sentenced to three years in prison and ordered to pay $1,889 in fines, court records show. The judge also ordered Mateo to register as a sex offender.
