A former North Aurora man has been convicted of sexually preying on a child in his care.
Darrell E. Beck, 46, of the 3300 block of Boulder Ridge Drive, Champaign, was convicted Friday by Associate Judge Clint Hull of one count of predatory criminal sexual assault, a Class X felony.
Between Oct. 24, 2006, and June 26, 2007, Beck had sexual contact with a young boy in his care. The boy was younger than 13 during the assault. The assault took place at Beck’s North Aurora home when Beck was a foster parent to the victim. Beck since has been living in Champaign.
Judge Hull set Beck’s next court appearance for 1:30 p.m. March 7, for post-trial motions and sentencing. Beck faces a sentence of between six and 30 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
The case was investigated by the Kane County Child Advocacy Center and prosecuted by Kane County Assistant State’s Attorneys Nydia Molina and Lori Schmidt.
