Sexual Abuse
Citation
Case Number: 
2013 IL 113998
Decision Date: 
Thursday, March 21, 2013
District: 
2d Dist.
Division/County: 
Winnebago Co.
Holding: 
Appellate court affirmed.
Justice: 
GARMAN
Element of "sexual conduct" can reasonably be inferred from indictment language detailing sexual penetration. Elements considered by jury as to crime of predatory criminal sexual assault encompassed elements of crime of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, including element of "sexual conduct". Thus, appellate court did not render a verdict on an additional element not considered by the jury. (KILBRIDE, FREEMAN, THOMAS, KARMEIER, and BURKE, concurring.)
