2nd accuser in abuse case tied to Web site:

I told you about John R. Wentworth briefly before. At the time he was alleged to have inappropriate contact with at least 3 underage girls. Well, another victim has come forward…

NAPERVILLE — Investigators said a second accuser has come forward in the case of a Naperville man who allegedly used a popular Web site to contact teenage girls for sex, police said Friday.

John R. Wentworth, 27, was arrested May 9 near the Riverwalk in downtown Naperville where he allegedly had gone to meet whom he thought would be a 14-year-old girl.

A DuPage County Grand Jury indicted Wentworth on a felony charge of indecent solicitation of a child and distribution of harmful materials. Wentworth also was charged with attempted aggravated criminal sexual abuse and aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Naperville police said the sex abuse charges are from contact Wentworth had with a 15-year-old Naperville girl. He had a Web page on MySpace.com where he posted sexually explicit photos of himself, police said.

The Naperville Police Internet Crimes Unit continues to investigate and wants to speak to anyone who had contact with Wentworth. His screen name was “Johnwinter78” on MySpace.com and AOL instant messenger.

The telephone number for the unit is 630-305-5384.
