Carpentersville, IL – A Carpentersville Middle School teacher, Kevin D. Lee, aged 24, of South Elgin, Illinois, is facing serious charges including burglary, sexual exploitation of a child, and grooming. 

According to a recent announcement from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office, the charges stem from an incident on February 26, 2024, at the Norris Recreation Center in St. Charles, Illinois, where Lee allegedly approached a child inappropriately.

According to Kane County State’s Attorney Jamie L. Mosser and St. Charles Chief of Police James Keegan, Lee, also a wrestling coach, was at the recreation center without authority and made an unsolicited comment to a child in the locker room. 

At the time, Lee was actively employed at Carpentersville Middle School.

Lee is currently detained in the Kane County jail, with a court appearance scheduled for March 20, 2024. While the charges are serious, it is important to remember that they do not constitute proof of guilt. Kevin D. Lee is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
