CHICAGO (AP) - A recent suburban Chicago substitute teacher is accused of sexually abusing three additional children after facing similar charges involving one child.

The Kane County state’s attorney office said Monday that a grand jury indicted 62-year-old Carlos A. Bedoya of Lake in the Hills. The charges include 14 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a child. Prosecutors say the four victims were younger than 13 and that the abuse started in 2015.

Defense lawyer Nischal Raval said Tuesday Bedoya maintains his innocence and will plead not guilty to all counts.

The former substitute teacher for Community Unit School District 300 posted $10,000 bond on the July complaint. With the new charges, he was rearrested and remains jailed on $3 million in bail.

If convicted, he could face a life sentence.
