SYCAMORE – An Oswego man accused of sexually abusing an underage family member was released on his signature Thursday.
Jontay T. Woods, 21, of the zero to 100 block of Beau Meade Road, was charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse. According to court documents, when questioned by Sandwich police, Woods said he had sex with a 13-year-old family member in November. He was 20 at the time.
Woods was indicted in March and picked up by Sandwich police Wednesday.
If convicted, Woods faces up to seven years in prison.
DeKalb County Assistant State’s Attorney Brooks Locke requested Woods receive a $50,000 bond with pretrial supervision and electronic home monitoring.
As a condition of his bond, Judge Phillip Montgomery required Woods to be under pretrial supervision, have no contact with the alleged victim and electronic home monitoring. Because his job at a roofing company requires him to travel from job to job, his monitoring also requires him to remain away from the alleged victim.
