Incest charge for Brighton man with history of sexual assault | #childpredator | #kidsaftey | #childsaftey


JERSEYVILLE — A Brighton man was charged with incest after having sex with an adult family member he had sexually assaulted when she was a child.

Jeffrey M. Hastings, 50, of the 18600 block of Shady Acres Lane, Brighton, was charged Dec. 11 by the Jersey County State’s Attorney’s Office with sexual relations within families, a Class 3 felony.

According to court documents, on Nov. 23 Hastings had sex with an adult family member.

Jersey County State’s Attorney Ben Goetten said there was a history of abuse between the two, which was why only Hastings was charged.

“The other party in this case was victimized by the defendant when she was a child,” Goetten said in a written statement. “The State has no interest in making a victim a defendant and in turn victimizing her again.”

Hastings is listed in the Illinois State Police sex offender database as a sexual predator.

According to the information there, he has prior convictions for predatory criminal sexual assault out of Macoupin County.
