A man from northwest Illinois is charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse. The incident involves a child.

Sixty-three-year-old James French was arrested on December 2. French is in the DuPage County jail.

The charges follow a report of a sexual encounter involving a minor at a home in Naperville in November. Police say evidence was found in French's home in Dakota, Ill., after a search warrant was issued.

French is now being held on $250,000 bond.
