Court Finds Naperville Man Guilty of Sexually Assaulting 2 Young Sisters

A DuPage County jury found Christopher Carter, 43, of Naperville, guilty of sexually assaulting two young sisters left in his care after their mother was murdered, according to authorities.

A Naperville man has been found guilty of sexually assaulting two young sisters left in his care after their mother was murdered and faces a term of natural life in prison, according to a DuPage County State's Attorney press release.

After a six-day trial, a DuPage County jury found Christopher Carter, 43, of the 1600 block of Brookdale, guilty on six counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and one count of criminal sexual assault, the release said. 

The trial began last Tuesday, Aug. 7 before Judge George Bakalis. The jury deliberated about two hours Wednesday, finding Carter guilty of all charges.  

Both girls were sent to live with Carter at his Naperville apartment in late 2004. At that time, one of the girls was 10 years old and the other was 7. Shortly after the girls began living at Carter's apartment, he began sexually assaulting the older girl, according to the release. 

Assaults against the younger sister began in 2007, when she was about 10 years old. Both girls continued to be assaulted until May 2008, when one of the victims told a friend who in turn alerted authorities.

“Simply put, Christopher Carter is a sexual predator who cares nothing for his victims,” State's Attorney Robert Berlin said in a press release. “His victims had just lost their mother to murder and were sent to live with him. Instead of loving and nurturing them in their most desperate time of need, Mr. Carter used and abused them to satisfy his own nauseating desires. They endured years of abuse before they were even teenagers."

Carter’s next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 12 for return of the pre-sentence report.

Who is this man and why did the girls have to go live with him? Why wasn't anyone checking up on these girls if he was not indeed a family member. Wow!

He was the alleged father of both girls. DNA later determinied he was not the natural father of either.

I agree. What a despicable being.

It states the girls were "sent to live with him". Sent to live with him, by whom?!? Where were the aunts, uncles, grandmother, or cousins? Where were the family of these children? This animal deserves life with no parole. To the family of these innocent children, I say, "You bear some blame here. Where were you?" ---Semper Fi.

The family repeatedly made attempts to stay in contract with the girls but to no avail! Phone calls were never answered and the bastard even tried moving to keep them away! So don't say the family was not there! The family are the ones who are now doing everything in their power to make sure these girls can have some semblance of a normal life after all of the trauma they have endured!
