Sex offender charged with living near McHenry day care

Posted: Updated:

A registered sex offender has been charged with living near a northwest suburban day care center after a mother spotted him acting suspiciously.

Juan Morales, 23, is charged with failure to register as a sex offender and child sex offender residing within 500 feet of a day care, both felonies, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s office.

About 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, a woman was waiting for a school bus with her child when a man approached and unzipped his pants, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.

Officers responded and located Morales, who had been living at a home in the 2700 block of Baldwin Road in McHenry, but was registered as homeless with Fox Lake police, according to the statement. The address Morales was living at is within 500 feet of a children’s day care.

Morales is being held at the McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility pending a bond hearing Thursday morning.
