Woman Accused of Having Sexual Contact With Teen Boy in Cemeteries

A suburban Chicago woman has reportedly been accused of having sexual contact with a 15-year-old boy numerous times, including encounters in local cemeteries.

Randal Perlman, 52, has been charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse, police said. She appeared in court Monday and her bond was set at $200,000, according to jail records.

Prosecutors say that Perlman first started communicating with the boy through Instagram. Perlman allegedly arranged to pick up the boy near his home on several occasions and drove him to various cemeteries, a public park and an abandoned school where she would engage in sexual conduct, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The publication reports prosecutors also said Perlman made an admission to police regarding the charges.

According to the Tribune, Perlman was on probation in Kane County for contributing to the delinquency of a minor in 2015 after she allegedly gave the same boy marijuana. As part of her probation, she was prohibited from having contact with him.

Perlman, of Elgin, is next expected to appear in court on June 17. It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney.
