Bond Set at $150,000 for Hinsdale Man Charged With Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin announced today that bond has been set for a Hinsdale man accused of sexually abusing a thirteen-year-old boy he met on an Internet dating application. Mark Sadlowski, 26 (d.o.b. 4/26/1993) of 532 N. North Street, appeared at a bond hearing yesterday afternoon where Judge Liam Brennan set bond at $150,000 with 10% to apply. Sadlowski has been charged with one count of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse, a Class 2 Felony.

            It is alleged that Sadlowski met his victim via an online dating application. It is alleged that Sadlowski arranged to meet the boy and that on November 1, 2019, Sadlowski and the victim met at which time the sexual abuse occurred. On January 8, 2020, a $150,000 arrest warrant was issued for Sadlowski. He was taken into custody the following day.

            “It is alleged that this defendant arranged to meet his victim via an online dating application and once they were alone, sexually abused him,” Berlin said. “These allegations are extremely disturbing and will be met with the full force of the law. I would like to thank the Burr Ridge Police Department as well as the DuPage County Children’s Center, particularly Investigator Steve Arp, for their work on this case. I would like to thank Assistant State’s Attorney Tom Minser for his work in securing charges against this defendant.”        

            Sadlowski’s next court appearance is scheduled for January 27, 2020 for arraignment in front of Judge Brennen.

            Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
