A Glendale Heights man is being held on $500,000 bond on charges of sexual abuse of a young child.

Forty-one-year-old Jesus Ortiz-Balbuena allegedly began abusing the child at the age of 6.

Prosecutors say the abuse increased when the child reached the fourth grade and it went on until three weeks ago.

The alleged victim is now 15.

Ortiz-Balbuena told the judge he has four children and he doesn't agree with the charges.
