ROCK FALLS – A 28-year-old Rock Falls man is being held on $100,000 bond, accused of sexually assaulting a then-10-year-old girl.

Tyler S. Shaw-Sodaro was arrested around 4 p.m. Friday in the 1000 block of Seventh Avenue and arraigned Monday in Whiteside County Court on one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a child, punishable by 3 to 7 years in prison.

He is accused of fondling the girl’s chest on Sept. 2.

He has a preliminary hearing Dec. 17.

In January 2010, Shaw-Sodaro was sentenced to 4 years’ probation, also in Whiteside County, for aggravated robbery committed 4 months earlier; a count of armed robbery was dismissed per his plea agreement.
