Two residents of Gurnee, Illinois, have been charged with indecent solicitation of a child.
The two residents, Gina M. Cusimano, 25, and Kevin C. Pettitt, 21, were charged on Thursday (August 2) for the July 30 incident.
The police were originally notified of improprieties by the mother of the 13-year-old girl, who said her daughter had been receiving inappropriate text messages from Cusimano and Pettitt. Cusimano and the 13-year-old girl were acquainted.
Arrests were made after a detective posing as the 13-year-old met Cusimano with the intention that they would go to Cusimano’s and Pettitt’s house to engage in sexual acts.
Additional details and possible updates can be seen in a variety of media sources including the August 3 Daily Herald story titled “Gurnee pair charged with soliciting child” as well as the August 3 Chicago Tribune article titled “Couple accused of arranging sex with girl, 13.”
