Man pleads guilty to assault

STREATOR— A Streator man has pleaded guilty in LaSalle County Circuit Court to the aggravated sexual assault and aggravated kidnapping of a 16-year-old girl.

Police said George Zelenak, 38, was waiting in front of the girl’s home when he approached her in February 2008 and struck her several times. He then forced her into his car and assaulted her.

He entered a blind plea, meaning it came with no agreement as to sentence, but the charges carry a 40-year maximum prison term. Zelenak is free after posting $25,000 cash bond until a Jan. 15 sentencing.

Ecstasy — A Bloomington man was jailed in lieu of posting $50,000 on drug charges.
