Il. Woman, 52, accused of sexual contact with boy, 15, in cemeteries
An Elgin woman is accused of having sexual contact with a 15-year-old boy on multiple occasions, including in local cemeteries.
Authorities said Randal Perlman, 52, began communicating with the teen through Instagram messages beginning in August and sent him photos of herself in various states of undress.
Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Maureen McGee said that Perlman arranged multiples times to pick up the boy near his home and then drove him on separate occasions to different cemeteries, a public park and an abandoned school to engage in sexual conduct with the teen, McGee said.
Perlman is charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse, officials said. She appeared in Cook County court Monday where her bond was set at $200,000.
McGee said Perlman made an admission to police regarding the charges.
The prosecutor said Perlman is on probation in Kane County for contributing to the delinquency of a minor in a 2015 case involving the same boy. In that case, Perlman was charged with giving the boy marijuana and, as part of her probation, was prohibited from having contact with him, McGee said.
