An Aurora man was sentenced to 6½ years in prison this week after admitting to sexually abusing a girl younger than 13 that he knew, according to Kane County court records.
Cesario Hernandez-Lozano, 31, of the 7100 block of Springbrook Drive, had been held at the Kane County jail since his arrest in January 2014.
He pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a child younger than 13, a felony that carries a prison term of three to seven years, in exchange for prosecutors dismissing the most severe charge of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child younger than 13, which is punishable by up to 30 years in prison.
Why would a prosecutor and a judge agree to this? That's absurd! He'll end up serving less than 1/5th of the sentence he could have received.
Kane County Judge James Hallock accepted the plea agreement, which also requires Hernandez-Lozano to pay $1,780 in fines, register as a sex offender and have no contact with the victim.
Hernandez-Lozano was accused of sexually assaulting and molesting the girl from May 2012 through Jan. 16, 2014, shortly before his arrest, court records show.
Hernandez-Lozano must serve 85 percent of the remainder of his sentence.
So, for more than a year and a half he molested this little girl, and he gets to plead to a single count of CSA? How crazy is that? Now, he has to serve 66 months out of 78 before parole; that's 3 years 5 months from now. The maximum age the victim could be then would be 17. How can the prosecutor and the judge not see that they are putting her in danger?
