Man accused of sexually assaulting children claims to be a ‘nine-year-old trapped in an adult’s body’

You know this had to happen sometime.  According to the Chicago Tribune, Joseph Roman, a 38-year-old local area man accused of sexually abusing three young girls allegedly told police he committed the crimes because he’s really a young boy trapped in a man’s body.

The Tribune said that Roman “is charged with predatory criminal sexual assault stemming from repeated attacks on three girls who were 6 to 8 years old at the time, according to prosecutors. Roman was a friend of the girls’ families at the time of the attacks between 2015 and January of this year.”

During a hearing Wednesday, prosecutors said Roman admitted to some of the attacks and told Chicago police “he is a 9-year-old trapped in an adult’s body.” He was ordered held without bail.

Prosecutors said the attacks began when the family of one of the girls moved into Roman’s home for 10 weeks. Roman is accused of regularly assaulting her between August 2015 and December 2017 while the other family members were sleeping. The girl was 6 when the assaults began.

In October 2016, Roman is accused of assaulting an 8-year-old girl while her family stayed with him for 10 weeks. Her mother worked a night shift, and Roman would help take care of the children, prosecutors said. One attack occurred while two younger children were in the room watching a video on a cellphone, prosecutors said.

Roman, who is being held without bail, was taken into custody and made a video admission on Monday, The Blaze reported. One of the charges against him is a Class X felony, the most serious felony in Illinois.
