A 35-year-old Joliet man arrested Saturday faces multiple felony sexual assault and child pornography charges.

Jason D. Hagerstrom was booked into the county jail on two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault; eight counts of criminal sexual assault; five counts of aggravated child pornography, and two misdemeanor battery charges.

According to a news release issued Sunday by Police Chief Michael Trafton, Hagerstrom allegedly committed the offenses over a 10- to 12-year period. The offenses involved a juvenile victim, he said.

“The investigation is ongoing and much work still needs to be completed,” he said.

More charges were expected. The Will County State’s Attorney’s office aided Joliet police in their investigation with search warrants and approval of charges, Trafton said.

Hagerstrom was to appear in bond court at 1:30 p.m. Monday.
