URBANA — An 81-year-old Urbana man has been charged with two felonies in connection with the alleged sexual abuse of a young girl.
Richard L. Cramer of the 100 block of Scovill Street was arraigned on Wednesday afternoon on two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a Class 3 felony. His bond was set at $25,000.
Urbana police Sgt. Dan Morgan said Cramer is alleged to have had sexual contact with a girl of about 10. The Champaign County state's attorney's office said the charges allege that he fondled the girl through her clothes.
The abuse occurred more than once over the course of a week, Morgan said.
He said Cramer reported the activity himself to "people who are required by law to report" allegations of improper sexual contact.
His next court date is Aug. 21.
