Bond set at $100,000 for Villa Park woman charged with Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse
DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin and Villa Park Chief of Police Mike Lay announced today that bond has been set for a Villa Park woman accused of sexually abusing two young boys age fourteen and sixteen. Stefanie Litton, 35 (d.o.b. 1/7/1983) of 435 S. Harvard, appeared at a Bond Hearing this morning where Judge George Bakalis set bond at $100,000 with 10% to apply. Litton has been charged with four counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse, a Class 2 Felony.
It is alleged that Litton met her victims at an underage drinking party she hosted at her home. It is alleged that she sexually abused one of her victims from December 2017, through February 2018, and that she sexually abused the second victim from January 2018 through July 2018. It is further alleged that the sexual abuse took place on multiple occasions in Litton’s vehicle. The Villa Park Police Department received an anonymous tip about the alleged abuse and began an investigation into the matter resulting in today’s charges.
“It is alleged that this defendant preyed on two young boys simply to satisfy her own sick sexual desires,” Berlin said.
“These allegations are extremely disturbing and, if found guilty, could land the defendant behind bars for a significant amount of time. I would like to thank the Villa Park Police Department for their work on this case. I would like to thank the DuPage County Children’s Center, particularly Investigators Vince Liberio and Cathy Hundley, for their efforts as well. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorney Mike Fisher for his work in securing today’s charges against this defendant.”

“I would like to thank members of the Villa Park Police Department’s Detective Division, Lay said.” “Working shoulder to shoulder with the DuPage County Children’s Center and the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office we were able to identify and charge this alleged sexual predator.”
Litton’s next court appearance is scheduled for January 2, 2019 for arraignment in front of Judge Jeffrey MacKay.
