Rural Chebanse Resident Arrested for Multiple Sex Crimes
Kankakee, IL- Yesterday afternoon (2/19/20), sheriff’s deputies arrested 19 year-old Adrienne Adams, of rural Chebanse, on several sexual-related crimes that occurred in the rural St. Anne area to multiple victims over several months.
“A credit to sheriff’s investigators who have spent a great
deal of time working on this complex case to gather the necessary evidence,”
said Sheriff Mike Downey. “Her
apprehension and arrest will undoubtedly make our communities safer and will
likely prevent future victimization.”
The events, which investigators claim have occurred since
August of 2019, resulted in Adams being charged with 11 counts of Predatory
Criminal Sexual Assault where the Victim is Under 13 Years of Age and 5 counts
of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse where the Victim is Under 13 Years of Age.
Adams was present in a Kankakee County
Courtroom earlier this afternoon where she was arraigned on her initial court
appearance. She is currently confined at
the Jerome Combs Detention Center on a $250,000 bond (10% to apply).
