A convicted sex offender has been charged again for exposing himself to several children in the Chicago suburbs.

According to the Cook County State’s Attorney office, 26-year-old Austin Hamilton of Des Plaines, was on probation for a previous child sex charge when he was arrested for exposing himself to young children on three separate occasions.

According to prosecutors, between August 2013 and May 2014, Hamilton approached the victims while they were playing near their homes in the northwest suburbs with his pants unzipped and began fondling himself.

The female victims who range in age from 7 to 9, notified a parent and were able to late identify Hamilton both at the scene and in a line-up, police say. He was apprehended by Mount Prospect police.

Hamilton appeared in bond court today where his bond was set at $100,000 dollars.

He is due in court again on June 19.
