Villa Park Woman Sentenced to Ninety Days Periodic Imprisonment for Sexual Abuse of Underage Boy

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin announced today that a Villa Park woman accused of sexually abusing two young boys age fourteen and sixteen has been sentenced to ninety days of periodic imprisonment in the DuPage County Jail. Stefanie Litton, 37 (d.o.b. 1/7/1983) of 435 S. Harvard, appeared at a sentencing hearing this afternoon where Judge Jeffrey MacKay handed down the sentence. On October 19, 2019, Litton entered a blind plea of guilty to one count of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse, a Class 2 Felony. The State asked for a sentence of three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

            Through her daughter, Litton met her victims at an underage drinking party she hosted at her home. In late 2018, the Villa Park Police Department received an anonymous tip that Litton was engaging in inappropriate sexual contact with underage boys. Through their investigation authorities learned that Litton did have inappropriate sexual contact with an underage boy and that the abuse occurred on multiple occasions beginning in December 2017 through approximately February 2018. Authorities also learned that the sexual abuse took place on multiple occasions in Litton’s vehicle. Litton was arrested on December 4, 2018 and bond was set the following day at $100,000 with 10% to apply. Litton posted the necessary 10%, or $10,000 that same day and was released from custody.

            “Stefanie Litton took advantage of a young boy less than half her age just to satisfy her sexual desires,” Berlin said. “Thanks to the efforts of the Villa Park Police Department however, her disgusting behavior was uncovered and she will now spend the rest of her life as a registered sex offender. 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. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorneys Mike Fisher and Jessica Sisler for their work in holding Stefanie Litton responsible for her actions.”

            Litton was also ordered to serve thirty-six months sex offender probation and will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
