A Rantoul man is being held at the Champaign County jail on $250,000 bond following his arrest last week for the predatory criminal sexual assault of a child.

Dahinte Terrell Thompson, 38, who listed an address in Rantoul, pleaded innocent on Monday to two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault.

Judge Richard Klaus set Thompson’s next court appearance for Jan. 22.

According to Rantoul police, a 13-year-old girl told a school counselor on Nov. 13 that she had been sexually abused.

Police interviewed the girl at the Children’s Advocacy Center. They arrested Thompson at his place of employment on Wednesday.
