DIXON – A former Amboy man, originally charged with five counts of sexually abusing two girls, ages 10 and 12, now is facing nine counts.

Ignacio Sarabia Jr., 49, of DeKalb, is charged with predatory sexual assault of a child. He is accused of six acts of sexual penetration with a girl younger than 13, three times in December 2008 and three in January 2009; and three acts of sexual penetration with another girl, also younger than 13, twice in January 2009 and once in February 2009.

The charges, each punishable by 6 to 30 years in prison, are outlined in a court document filed May 16 in Lee County Court. No explanation for the new charges was provided in the document.

Sarabia was arrested in July 2010 after a 2-month investigation. He remains in Lee County Jail on $250,000 bond.

He will be arraigned May 23 on the new charges.
