Army Specialist Sentenced to 75 Years for Sexually Assaulting Young Girl
DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin announced today that a former Army Specialist has been sentenced to seventy-five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for sexually assaulting a young female. The sentence, which was handed down by Judge Liam Brennan, follows a jury trial in which the jury found Andrew Hui Guilty, 40 (d.o.b. 11/16/1978) of twelve counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault (Class X Felony) and one count of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse (Class 2 Felony). He has been held in custody since his May, 2015 arrest on bond of $750,000 with 10% to apply.
Today’s sentence stems from allegations that from April, 2011 through June, 2013, Hui sexually assaulted his victim on multiple occasions while he was staying with the victim’s family at her home in Oak Brook. The abuse came to light when the victim alerted her father what Hui had done to her. Her father then contacted the Oak Brook Police Department who then contacted the DuPage County Children’s Center.
“For more than two years, Andrew Hui repeatedly sexually assaulted his young victim just to satisfy his own sick sexual desires,” Berlin said “What is particularly disturbing in this case is that Mr. Hui was an Army Specialist and as such was trusted by the victim’s family and looked up to and admired by his victim. He repaid the trust and admiration placed in him by sexually assaulting his young victim time and time again. I would like to thank the Oak Brook Police Department for their work on this extremely disturbing case. I would like to thank the DuPage County Children’s Center, particularly Investigators George Fencl and Boris Vrbos for their outstanding work. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorneys Nicole Wilkes-English and Lee Roupas for their work on this case and continued efforts in seeking justice for the victims of sexual assaults.”
On the Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault charges, Hui received seventy-two years to be served at 85%. On the Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse charge, he will be required to serve three years of the sentence at 50%. The sentences will be served consecutively resulting in the seventy-five-year sentence.
