Forty-four-year-old Keith Truesdell of Kankakee is jailed in Watseka on a $100,000 bond. He’s charged with 23 felony counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child and 13 counts of Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child. His arrest by Iroquois County Sheriff’s Police alleges the acts occurred between 2007 and 2011.
Iroquois County Sheriff investigator Clint Perzee said the assaults began before the victim was 13-years-old, reason for the “predatory” criminal sexual assault charges. Perzee said Kankakee County investigators are also working the case for possible charges there too.
Truesdell was returned to court in Watseka Tuesday by sheriff’s police. He’s due back in court April 17th.
Truesdell was among nine defendants indicted by the Iroquois County grand jury.
