Thad W. Sugay, 23, most recently of the 1200 block of Chickory Lane, Naperville, pleaded guilty Friday to one count of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, a Class X felony, in exchange for a 15-year sentence in the Illinois Department of Corrections, according to a Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office release.
Sixteenth Circuit Associate Judge James C. Hallock accepted the negotiated plea.
According to authorities, Sugay had sexual contact with a young girl he knew when he lived with the girl’s family in St. Charles between October 2008 and April 2010. The girl was younger than 13 years old at the time of the contact.
The Kane County State's Attorney's Office pointed out in the release that Sugay must serve at least 85 percent of the sentence under Illinois law. He gets credit for 252 days served in the Kane County Jail, where since his arrest he has been held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Upon his release from prison, Sugay will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, as required under the Illinois Sex Offender Registration Act, according to the release.
The case was investigated by the Kane County Child Advocacy Center with assistance from the DuPage County Child Advocacy Center, the release states. The case was prosecuted by Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Lori Schmidt.
