A press release from McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi:
THOMAS REED FOUND GUILTY OF PREDATORY CRIMINAL SEXUAL ASSAULT OF A CHILD AND AGGRAVATED CRIMINAL SEXUAL
Louis A. Bianchi, McHenry County State’s Attorney, announces that 54 year old Thomas Reed, formerly of Algonquin, was found guilty, after a jury trial, of three criminal counts:
- two counts of the offense of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and

The Defendant was arrested after the victim came forward and reported that she had been sexually abused by the defendant between the years 1999 and 2003.
The victim, now an adult, had received years of therapy that led to her reporting the crimes to the police.
This case was investigated by the McHenry City Police Department.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney Kate Lenhard and Patrick Kenneally.
