A Polo man plead not guilty in Ogle County court Wednesday in connection with an alleged sexual abuse incident involving a 16-year old girl.
40-year old Shannan Haenitsch has been charged with 4 counts of the felony offense of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
The victim told sheriff's police that in early June of this year, she had sexual relations with Haenitsch. The Polo man knew the girl.
In court yesterday, probable cause was found in the case as Haenitsch demanded a jury trial. The judge also reduced bond from $200,000 to $100,000.
Haenitsch returns to Ogle County court next Tuesday for a pre-trial conference. He remains in jail in lieu of bond.
