Schaumburg man pleads guilty to sexually assaulting two children
A Schaumburg man has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting two children he knew and possessing child pornography.
Randall Porter-Rabey, 39, accepted a sentence of 23 years in prison on Thursday, authorities announced on Tuesday.
Porter-Rabey pleaded guilty to predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, child pornography and aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
According to a news release from the Kane County state's attorney's office, he abused two children younger than 13 between November 2015 and July 2017. Court records alleged he photographed the assaults.
According to an Elgin police report, Schaumburg police were investigating a child pornography allegation against Porter-Rabey in late April 2019 when they told Elgin police that Porter-Rabey may have committed other crimes while living in Elgin with his wife.
Porter-Rabey will have to register for life as a sex offender.
The sentence is 17 years for the predatory criminal sexual assault count, and he will have to serve 85% of that before being eligible for parole. But after serving that sentence, he will have to serve three years each on the other charges. He is eligible for day-for-day credit on those two.
He received credit for 900 days he was in custody while awaiting trial.
Porter-Rabey was serving a prison sentence in Indiana for child neglect when the Kane County charges were filed in August 2019.
In the Indiana case, he was charged in April 2014 with two counts of child molestation and one count of neglect of a dependent. He was living in Indianapolis at the time. After he posted bond, he was charged in August 2014 with three counts of child molestation/intercourse or deviate sex with a victim under 14, plus one count of child molestation, according to Indiana court records.
The cases were consolidated, and he pleaded guilty in October 2016 to one count of neglect of a dependent. He was sentenced to six years of sex offender probation, banned from unsupervised contact with minors, and allowed to use the internet only for work.
Porter-Rabey was allowed to see his biological child and was to live at his grandparents' house in Illinois, according to Indiana court records.
But then his probation was revoked. At his resentencing hearing, Porter-Rabey admitted to the child molestation charge and was sentenced to eight years in prison. He was released in May 2021.
