A 23-year-old Crystal Lake man was arrested Sunday night by La Grange police and charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse after admitting that he engaged in sexual activity with a 15-year-old Brookfield boy in the parking structure behind Village Hall, according to a press release issued Tuesday by police.
Scott Madura was taken into custody shortly after midnight when an officer on a routine patrol of the parking deck discovered Madura and the boy inside a parked vehicle.
During his investigation, the officer learned that the two were engaged in sexual activity and that the Brookfield resident was a minor, police said.
During questioning later at the police station, police say Madura admitted the sexual nature of the encounter and told them he met the boy in an Internet chat room.
Madura was arraigned Tuesday morning at the Cook County courthouse in Bridgeview, at which time bond was set at $200,000. A preliminary hearing on the charge is scheduled for March 22 at 9:00 a.m.
The Brookfield youth was released to the custody of his parents.
