A Beach Park man is facing predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, child pornography and aggravated sexual abuse in connection with a victim under the age of 13.

Kevin Stirnichuk, 53, of the 3800 block of North Avenue was arrested Sept. 25 after a relative of the victim went to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office to say Stirnichuk had videos on his personal computer showing him engaging in sexual contact with the victim.

The victim was under the age of 13 at the time of the offense and the sheriff’s office worked with the Lake County Children’s Advocacy Center to investigate the incident.

Stirnichuk was being held on $500,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Lake County Circuit Court on Oct. 21.

The sheriff’s office said they believe there could be more victims. Anyone with information on Stirnichuk or additional victims should contact Detective Wendell Russell or Lake County State’s Attorney Investigator James Magna at (847) 377-3155.
