An Antioch, IL, daycare owner was charged with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse last Friday at a Lake County courthouse. Michael Moskowitz, a 49 year-old resident of 1010 W. Osmond Ave., was taken into custody on allegations that he had sexually abused an 8 year-old family member. Moskowitz had operated a licensed in home day care center in north suburban Antioch since 2006. The center’s license has been suspended by the Department of Children and Family Services (“DCFS”) as the police are investigating the sexual abuse allegation. The DCFS office has also removed six children that lived with Moskowitz at his Antioch home.
The aggravated criminal sexual assault charges facing Moskowitz are Class 2 felonies carrying up to seven years in prison. His bond has been set at $50,000.00.
