DuPage County prosecutors filed new charges against Michael Cardamone Tuesday.

Cardamone, a former Aurora gymnastics coach, was convicted in 2005 on allegations that he improperly touched girls at his family's gym. They were eventually overturned by the appellate court.

On Tuesday, prosecutors filed two new charges of predatory sexual assault and criminal sexual assault and reinstated the criminal sexual assault charge that was overturned in 2008.

Cardamone issued a written statement saying the new charges quote "show the maliciousness and vindictiveness of the DuPage state's attorney's office."
