A Glenview man's bond was set at $200,000 Saturday after he admitted to sexually assaulting a young female relative.

Jose Guadalupe Huerta-Jimenez, 31, was charged with predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and criminal sexual abuse after a young relative came forward accusing him, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said. 

Huerta-Jimenez admitted to assaulting the victim, living in the same home as him, police say. The victim told police in November 2010 that Huerta-Jimenez entered her room, sat on the bed and began sexually assaulting her.

She was able to push Huerta-Jimenez off of her and left the room. The victim didn't initially report it to police because Huerta-Jimenez said he would deny it, authorities said. 

The victim confided in a friend who encouraged her to approach a school counselor. The counselor contacted the victim's parents and police, who arrested Huerta-Jimenez on May 19 at his home.
  
Huerta-Jimenez is due in court on June 20.
