Glen Carbon found guilty of child molestation

EDWARDSVILLE, Illinois — A Madison County jury on Wednesday found a Glen Carbon man guilty of sexually assaulting a minor.

In late July 2020, the Glen Carbon Police Department received a complaint from a man who engaged in sexual activity with a minor. The incidents occurred between August 17, 2019 and July 30, 2020.

On August 4, 2020, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Jesse Chartrand and took him into custody.

Chartrand had asked the jury to find him not guilty by reason of insanity.

The jury began deliberations on Wednesday afternoon and reached a guilty verdict in the evening.

Chartrand was convicted of one count of predatory criminal sexual assault on a child and two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

The Madison County Attorney’s Office credited the county’s Child Advocacy Center with questioning the victim and providing support to the victim and her family. The victim testified at the trial.

Predatory criminal sexual assault on a child, the more serious charge, carries a sentence of six to 60 years in prison. Chartrand will be sentenced at a later date. Glen Carbon found guilty of child molestation
