A Grayslake man pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges he sexually molested a young girl repeatedly over a three-year period.

Tim Yeung, 49, is charged with multiple counts of predatory sexual assault of a child, criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Lake County Assistant State's Attorney James Newman said Yeung, of the 900 block of Cambridge Drive, was contacted by the state Department of Children and Family Services in early November.

The victim in the case, who is now 17 years old, had told a counselor she was repeatedly molested by Yeung between the years of 2001 and 2003.

A DCFS investigator confronted Yeung with the allegations, Newman said, and called Grayslake police when Yeung admitted they were true.

Police said Yeung gave them a complete oral and written confession to the acts.

Associate Judge Daniel Shanes scheduled a trial of the case for March 8 and told Yeung, who is being held on $1 million bond, to appear in court again Feb. 16.
