Joliet Man Convicted of Sexually Abusing a Child

A 58-year-old Joliet man was convicted on multiple counts of Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child in Will County Court on Thursday. Vincent Winters was found guilty on three counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child and three counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse of a Child after assaulting a five-year-old girl in 2017.

The jury returned its verdict after approximately two-and-a- half hours of deliberation. Because Winters has a previous aggravated criminal sexual assault conviction from 1993, he will receive a life sentence.
