CHICAGO (CBS)–A registered sex offender from northwest suburban Elgin has been charged with multiple sex offenses after police said he exposed himself to four people under age 18 at a public pool on Monday and touched one person inappropriately.
Prosecutors in Kane County charged Jose T. Barboza-Lopez, with aggravated criminal sexual abuse, entering a public park as a sex offender, four counts of public indecency and two counts of battery.READ MORE: 1 Killed, 4 Injured In Evanston Shooting
The charges stem from an incident the state’s attorney’s office says allegedly occurred at Wing Park Family Aquatic Center in Elgin Monday. Barboza-Lopez allegedly exposed himself to multiple people and touched someone with his exposed genitalia. One of the victims is under age 13, police said.
Barboza-Lopez was banned from public park areas after being convicted in 2016 of sexually exploiting a 14-year-old.
He is also on probation for a 2016 burglary in Kane County, the state’s attorney said.READ MORE: At Least 40 People Wounded, 3 Killed In Thanksgiving Weekend Shootings In Chicago

His charges carry a maximum sentence of seven years in prison, the state’s attorney said.
