KANKAKEE — Adrienne Adams, 19, of Wilmington, was arrested Wednesday by Kankakee County Sheriff’s Police and charged with five Class X felony counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child.

The victims are two boys and a girl ranging in ages from 8 to 12, Assistant State’s Attorney Mark Laws said during Adams’ bond hearing Thursday before Judge Clark Erickson. He set Adams’ bond at $250,000.

Adams is not related to the victims. She was in a dating relationship with one of the victims’ adult relative Laws said.

The offenses occurred between Aug. 1 and Dec. 31, 2019, according to information filed Thursday by the Kankakee County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Kankakee County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Ken McCabe said that on Jan. 2, the children’s mother called police to report the abuse.

If convicted, each count of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child would carry a possible 30-year sentence. Adams’ next court date is March 16.
