An Aurora man charged with 13 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and two counts of traveling to meet a minor remains in the Kane County jail on $275,000 bail.
The next court hearing for Ronald J. Lye, 50, of Aurora, is set for Friday. Kane County prosecutors allege that multiple times since April 1, Lye drove to a juvenile’s home, picked up the juvenile whom he met on a social media dating app, drove the juvenile to his Aurora home and had sexual contact with the victim.
Lye knew the juvenile was younger than 18 years old, according to a news release from the Kane County State's Attorney's Office. If he posts bond, Lye is to have no contact with anyone younger than 18 years old, including family members, according to the release.
The Kane County Child Advocacy Center and the Aurora Police Department investigated the case, which remains under investigation. Those with any information are urged to call the Kane County Child Advocacy Center at 630-208-5160.
