Man in prison for assaulting child convicted of 2nd assault

GENEVA (AP) — A suburban Chicago man serving a 45-year prison sentence for sexually assaulting a foster child has been convicted of assaulting a second child.

Kane County Circuit Judge Donald M. Tegeler Jr. found 51-year-old Noel F. Buhay guilty Tuesday of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Prosecutors say Buhay sexually assaulted the victim, whom he knew, multiple times between December 2005 and December 2008. The victim was younger than 13 when the abuse started.

Buhay of Sugar Grove was previously convicted on March 17, 2017, of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child. In that case, he was accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a foster child younger than 12 years old who was living with his family.

He faces a minimum of 51 years in prison for his latest conviction. The sentence would be served consecutive to his current sentence.
