A 32-year-old Streamwood man pleaded guilty to molesting a 14-year-old girl and was sentenced to one year in prison.

Angelo Cannata, who pleaded guilty to criminal sexual abuse, was also ordered to register as a sex offender and pay $689 in fines, court records show.

Cannata molested the girl while she slept at the home of a friend in May 2013, prosecutors said during a hearing in Rolling Meadows. The girl told her sister but would not tell anyone else, prosecutors said. The victim's mother confronted her in August 2013, after noticing a change in her daughter's behavior.

A police investigation concluded with Cannata's arrest in April 2014, prosecutors said.

Cannata received 92 days credit toward his sentence. He must complete at least 50 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
