Parolee held on $500K in Ottawa teen sex abuse case

NewsTribune Senior Reporter

OTTAWA — An Ottawa man faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of having sex with an underage woman less than a year after his parole from another sex conviction.
Cody Allen Duchala, 22, of 403 Marquette St. was ordered held Friday on $500,000 bond and told he’s Class X felony eligible (6-30 years, no probation) for a charge that otherwise would have carried no more than 7 years in prison.

Duchala needs to post $50,000 in cash to be released from La Salle County Jail.
Ottawa police said in a release issued Friday that Ducahala is accused of sexually abusing a teenager and that the act was committed while on parole. Department of Corrections records show he was paroled shortly before last Christmas after serving part of a 5-year term for sex abuse. The repeat history thrust him into a higher sentencing bracket.

He will next appear Oct. 10 for arraignment before Judge Cynthia M. Raccuglia.
