Lemont Man Charged with Molesting 14-Year-Old Girl

Greg A. Voegtlin, 43, accused of sexually abusing teen from 2003 to 2005.

A 43-year-old man who lives in unincorporated Lemont was arrested Tuesday on charges of sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl in 2003.

Greg A. Voegtlin, 17242 W. Bluff Road, was charged with four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and one count of attempted aggravated criminal sexual abuse, according to the Will County Sheriff's Office.

Charles B. Pelkie, spokesman for Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow, said charges were filed last week against Voegtlin, who is free after posting $4,000 of a $40,000 bail Tuesday.

Two counts against Voegtlin are for sexual contact that reportedly occurred in May 2003, when the victim was 14, Pelkie said. Two counts are for sexual contact that reportedly occurred in July 2003.

The fifth charge is for attempted sexual contact that reportedly occurred sometime between Sept. 1, 2005, and Nov. 30, 2005.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, sheriff's police said the alleged victim, who lives in an unincorporated area near Lemont, recently reported her abuse to police because she believes there might be other victims.

Aggravated criminal sexual abuse is a Class 2 felony that carries a sentence of three to seven years upon conviction. Attempted aggravated criminal sexual abuse is a Class 3 felony, which carries a sentence of two to five years.

Sorry, you misunderstood, KY43. Not sure what you meant by "cousin right"?, I just hadn't found out the verdict yet and was asking. I found out - justice was served.

To Lauren Ashley It doesn't matter what you find ridiculous. What matters is truth. I, also, want justice served. It cannot be done when one party can accuse another without any evidence. There was none in this case. The prosecution continually said "her accusation is all the evidence that is needed". Really?! Uncorroborated testimony is not evidence. It's only uncorroborated testimony.

Name even one piece of evidence.

To KY43 Where I'm from is not relevant to the trial, or justice, or my arguments, or anything else related to this issue. I am not blaming the victim. I am defending him.

Mr. R. Bass, I was at the sentencing, during which the States Assist. Attorney read the statement from Greg's pre-sentencing psychological analysis (post-conviction, pre-sentencing), in which Greg admitted to having her lay on top of him while he massaged her back, admitted to massaging her legs and then having her massage his legs, as well as other things that Greg admitted to which did not even come out in the trial! (don’t forget, Greg was 37 and she was 14) Yet without knowledge of these things, you want to declare his innocence! Now from Greg’s own statements he has condemned himself. You speak of truth, obtain a copy of that analysis and you will have your truth. Guilty!
