Kane County Judge David P. Kliment has found 59-year-old Khamsaume D. Xayvong guilty of the offenses of aggravated criminal sexual assault in which the victim is older than 60, a Class X felony; and unlawful restraint, a Class 4 felony.
Xayvong waived his right to a jury trial, and Kliment issued the verdict on Feb. 10.
Kane County Assistant State’s Attorneys Lori Anderson and Katy Flannagan presented evidence during the trial that on July 6, 2019, Xayvong sexually assaulted the victim. Xayvong knew the victim.
Kliment set Xayvong’s next court appearance for 1:30 p.m. April 8, 2021, in Courtroom 305 at the Kane County Judicial Center for motions and sentencing.
Xayvong faces a sentence of between 6 and 30 years of imprisonment in the Illinois Department of Corrections. In addition to the prison term, Xayvong must register for life as a sexual offender in accordance with the Illinois Sexual Offender Registration Act.
Xayvong remains in custody at the Kane County jail, where he has been held since his arrest in lieu of $1 million bail.
Anderson thanked the Aurora Police Department for its thorough investigation in this case, and especially for the care taken with the elderly victim.
“The victim’s courage in speaking out about this crime and willingness to testify against this defendant were so important in preventing him from making a victim of anyone else,” she said.
