Chandel Dirkans of Joliet was found guilty in August of 17 counts sexual assault, unlawful restraint and aggravated domestic battery against the 16-year-old girl. He also previously pleaded guilty to one count of “armed habitual criminal.”

Will County prosecutors say the 37-year-old Dirkans sexually assaulted the teenager five times over three hours on November 5, 2015. The teen testified at trial that Dirkans, the brother of the victim’s stepmother, threatened her with a knife during the assault.
