A Lake Bluff man was charged last week with predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, according to Lake Bluff police.

Robert E. Bruce, 96, of the 400 block of Park Lane, was charged after turning himself in to the Lake County Sheriff's Department on Oct. 11, according to Lake Bluff Police. Bruce was released after paying 10 percent of a $100,000 bond, said Cynthia Vargas, spokeswoman for the Lake County State's Attorney.

Bruce allegedly engaged in sexual conduct with a child under the age of 13 in his home on Park Lane, police said. The alleged victim was a child of guests at Bruce's home, police said.

Neither Bruce nor his attorney could be reached for comment.

Family members notified police on Oct. 6 of the alleged molestation, saying it had occurred earlier in October, police said. Lake Bluff Police and the Lake County Children's Advocacy Center jointly investigated, police said.

Bruce's next court date is Nov. 9 at Lake County Circuit Court in Waukegan, Vargas said. If convicted, he would face six to 30 years in prison, she said.





Virginia softball coach indicted on child sex charges
The Daily Progress 

A former volunteer softball coach in Orange County has been charged with nearly three dozen counts involving sexual and other crimes against children, ranging from forcible sodomy and object sexual penetration to cruelty to children.

Cathy S. Rothgeb, 57, of Stanley, was indicted by an Orange County grand jury Friday and turned herself in to police the same day. She is being held without bond at the Central Virginia Regional Jail, according to Virginia State Police officials.

Rothgeb, a former youth softball coach for Orange County High School, coached youth recreational league and travel teams in Orange County, Spotsylvania County and other nearby localities from the 1980s through the early 2000s.

Police said she has no current affiliation with Orange County High School.

The charges stem from an investigation begun by state police in the summer of 2016 after a female victim approached an investigator about alleged sexual abuse during Rothgeb’s tenure as a volunteer softball coach, police said.

According to Orange County Circuit Court records, Rothgeb’s 34 charges are based on incidents that occurred between 1990 and 1998.





Missouri man gets plea deal for sexual abuse of girl

An Oronogo man pleaded guilty Monday to a reduced count in a child sexual abuse case and was sentenced to nine years in prison.

Maxwell T. Purvis, 27, pleaded guilty in Jasper County Circuit Court to a Class B felony count of second-degree child molestation in a plea agreement with the prosecutor's office that limited his sentence to no more than nine years. He had been facing a charge of statutory sodomy with a child under 12, which carries a sentencing range from 10 years to life in prison.

Circuit Judge Dean Dankelson accepted the plea deal and assessed Purvis the agreed-upon length of sentence.

Purvis was accused of committing an act of deviate sexual intercourse with a 7-year-old girl in January or February of this year in Oronogo. The girl disclosed the abuse during an interview at the Children's Center in Joplin in the course of an investigation by the Jasper County Sheriff's Department and the Missouri Department of Social Services.

The case had been set to go to trial Nov. 7 before the plea agreement was reached.
