BLOOMINGTON — A Bloomington man has been accused by police of sexually assaulting and abusing a child.

James W. Lawrence, 45, is charged with three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and two counts of criminal sexual assault of a child between 13 and 17 years old.

He’s accused by authorities of committing sexual acts from Jan. 19 through 20.

A warrant for his arrest was issued May 20 and returned Monday, when his bond was set at $1 million, 10% to apply, meaning he would need to pay $100,000 plus a $35 bond fee to be released.

According to the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) here is a list of 10 important reminders consumers should do to protect their information.

Lawrence’s bond remained set at that amount during a custody hearing Tuesday.

An arraignment is scheduled for June 11.
