Juan Ibarra, 53, groped a teenaged boy he offered to drive home from school in February, prosecutors said. Ibarra is charged with one felony count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Investigators say the second victim came forward after Ibarra was charged with sexual abuse after allegedly groping a teenager in a shower at a health club last April. http://abc7chicago.com/news/cps-employee-charged-with-groping-teen-at-lyons-gym-/613569/
