Man acquitted in sex abuse case

WOODSTOCK A jury acquitted a 41-year-old McHenry man Thursday of four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Prosecutors alleged Gonzalo Ramirez-Palacios, of 400 Kensington Drive, fondled two female family members about two or three years ago, but a BGL attorney characterized the victims at rebellious teenagers who fabricated the allegations.

The verdict came after a three-day trial before Judge Gordon Graham. If he had been convicted, Ramirez-Palacios could have been sentenced to probation or up to seven years in prison.
