SYCAMORE – A DeKalb man originally charged with multiple sex felonies was released Tuesday as part of a plea deal after 5 months in jail.

Adam M. Timm, 27, of the 300 block of Gurler Street in DeKalb, pleaded guilty Tuesday to aggravated criminal sexual abuse in exchange for a second count of the same charge being dropped. Timm faced up to 14 years in prison on both charges combined.

Timm, a registered sex offender, was sentenced to 18 months of probation and 30 days in the county jail in August 2007 for misdemeanor sexual exploitation of a child, or exposing himself, public records show. When the offense occurred in November 2005, he was 20 and the victim was 13, according to the Illinois State Police Sex Offender Registry.

Timm was charged with the felonies after he inappropriately touched a female family member younger than 13 on Sept. 28, authorities said. He was being held on $150,000 bond.

As part of the agreement, Timm will be sentenced on May 21 but no further jail or prison time is expected, authorities said. However, he was ordered to undergo a sex offender evaluation upon release Tuesday.

Sex offender evaluations assess risk to the community and identify and document treatment and developmental needs.
