AMBOY -- An Amboy County man is accused of bribery and witness tampering in his upcoming trial on Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse charges.  Dixon police arrested 42-year-old Nikos M. Kastrinsios for Bribery (Class 2 Felony) and Harassment of a Witness (Class 2 Felony). 

Kastrinsios is about to go on trial for alleged sexual abuse back in January of 2011.  Officers allege he made contact with a witness against him back in January and attempted to bribe him into not testifying.  Police did not release details about the amount of the bribe -- only that one was offered.  He is being held in the Lee County jail on the new charges.
