WOODSTOCK – A Wonder Lake man faces sexual assault charges after having a sexual relationship with a minor who was also a family member, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.

Michael E. Allen, 32, was arrested Monday and charged with three felony counts of criminal sexual assault and three counts of criminal sexual abuse.

The sheriff’s office received a hotline report from the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services stating that Allen was having a sexual relationship with a family member, according to a news release. The family member, also a minor, told investigators of the sexual relationship.

Allen is being held at the McHenry County Jail on $100,000 bond.

He is next scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning.
