A former maintenance supervisor at a Willowbrook nursing home was sentenced to four years in prison Tuesday for sexually assaulting a female underling 12 years ago.

Marco Campos faced up to eight years in prison. He denied any wrongdoing despite pleading guilty in August. The 47-year-old North Aurora man who used to live in West Chicago told DuPage Judge Blanche Hill Fawell that he pleaded guilty because he feared being found guilty of the multiple sexual assaults he was accused of by four former housekeepers at the nursing home.

The case has lingered in the judicial system after a mistrial was declared in Campos' 2002 trial.

Prosecutors contend Campos preyed on housekeepers who did not speak English well or were indigent. Many of the women said they didn't report the assaults because they were afraid of losing their jobs.

In addition to his prison sentence, Campos will have to serve two years of probation, submit DNA samples and register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
