A Round Lake Beach man faces up to 14 years in prison after admitting Thursday he repeatedly molested two young girls.

Charles Chebny, 43, will also be eligible for probation when he is sentenced Sept. 24 by Circuit Judge Fred Foreman.

Lake County Assistant State's Attorney Ari Fisz said Chebny, of 311 Wildwood Drive, molested the girls on several occasions between 1999 and 2000.

The girls were both 9 years old when the attacks began, Fisz said.

The girls told a relative about the attacks last year, Fisz said, and that relative called police.

Chebny pleaded guilty to a charge of aggravated criminal sexual abuse for each of the girls during a court hearing Thursday.

Chebny's plea agreement states that if Foreman chooses to sentence him to prison, he will be required to serve consecutive sentences.

Fisz said the requirement means Chebny would face a total prison term of six to 14 years.
