CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A north suburban Evanston man is accused of engaging in sex acts with a 14-year-old boy he solicited through Craigslist.

Jonathan Labe, 53, was charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse and several misdemeanor counts for solicitation of a minor child, endangering the life of a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

Cook County prosecutors said Saturday Labe put an ad on Craigslist seeking sex with an 18-year-old. The 14-year-old answered the ad, and they began texting, arranging a visit to Labe's home on Oct. 16. The teen told Labe he was under 17 in the text messages, according to prosecutors, who said the boy went to Labe's home Oct. 16 and 17 and engaged in sex acts with him.

Labe, who has no criminal history, was ordered held Saturday on $50,000 bail.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
