ST. LOUIS, MO (KMOX) – Jack C. Baldwin, 34, of Belleville is charged with two class X felonies: Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault and Aggravated Child Pornography. Belleville police say he sent sexually explicit images to an 11-year-old girl. They say there is evidence to suggest he also sexually assaulted her during a visit last year. Baldwin is known to be a friend of the girl’s family.

Class X  felonies are the most serious offenses before murder in Illinois. Class X felonies can note be sentenced to probation and have a minimum sentence of 6 to 30 years.

Belleville Detective Karl Kraft says evidence and phone records from the suspect and victim support the belief that there could be multiple victims. Kraft is asking those who have associated with him to make sure their children had no inappropriate contact with him.

He is being held on $500,000 bail.
