An attorney for a New Lenox man charged with attempted criminal sexual assault and sending inappropriate photos to two minors has requested he undergo a mental examination.
Anthony M. Carbone, 19, has been charged with trying to sexually assault a 38-year-old woman on the Old Plank Road Trail in Frankfort. He has also been charged with sending inappropriate photos, such as a photo of his genitals, to two teenage girls through Snapchat and Instagram, according to police and court records.
Carbone’s attorney, Jeff Tomczak, filed a motion Tuesday to have a “qualified psychiatrist or psychologist” conduct an examination to determine if he has a mental disability and if he is unable to understand court proceedings.
Carbone is being held at the Will County jail on a $1 million bond.
He was arrested by Frankfort police June 9 in connection with an attack on a woman on the Old Plank Road Trail, according to court records. He was released about two days later after he posted 10% of his $150,000 bond.
Mokena Police Chief Steven Vaccaro said Carbone solicited girls to send him inappropriate photos.
“He would strike up a conversation and solicit pictures and send them pictures,” Vaccaro said.
Vaccaro said Mokena police were contacted by one of the teenage girls’ parents Nov. 18. He said Carbone attempted to meet one of the girls through a social media app.
The woman who said she was attacked by Carbone petitioned for a protective order against him.
