Prosecutors charged Lyle Levon Booker of the Grand Crossing neighborhood with aggravated criminal sexual assault of a child under nine-years-old and indecent solicitation-aggravated criminal sexual abuse, the records show.

A 14-year-old girl told police that Booker sat on her bed last month, touched her inappropriately, and offered her $100, then $200, and eventually $300 if she would let him perform a sex act, the state’s complaint says.

During their investigation, detectives heard from an adult woman who told them that Booker had repeatedly sexually abused and assaulted her when she was eight- or nine-years-old, according to police records.

Booker turned himself in last Thursday at Area North police headquarters, 2452 West Belmont.

A judge set his bail at $500,000.
