An 18-year-old Machesney Park man faces charges for the alleged sexual assault of a child under the age of 13.
Thomas Bertrand turned himself in on Wednesday after being charged with Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse. He was ordered held on a $50,000 bond and has apparently bonded out of jail as he is no longer listed on the Winnebago County Jail’s inmate roster.
The Rockford Police Department Sensitive Crimes Unit has been investigating after the assault was reported months ago at a home in the 2800 block of Kinsey Street. Police are not releasing any more details at this time due to the sensitive nature of the accusations.
