DIXON – A 38-year-old Dixon man accused of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a child is free after posting $5,000 of his $50,000 bond.

Kenneth J. Schultheis was arrested Monday after police say he solicited a 15-year-old girl sometime in May.

Schultheis faces 4 to 15 years in prison if convicted of predatory criminal sexual assault and 2 to 5 years in prison if convicted of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

He posted bail and was released from Lee County jail on Tuesday, and has a preliminary hearing Sept. 2.
