A former Army specialist was sentenced Augh. 29 to 75 years in prison for sexually assaulting a young female in her Oak Brook home.

The sentence, which was handed down by Judge Liam Brennan, follows a jury trial in which Andrew Hui, 40, was found guilty of 12 counts of predatory criminal sexual assault and one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, according to a DuPage County State's Attorney's Office news release.

Hui has been in custody since his May 2015 arrest on bond of $750,000.

The sentence stems from allegations that from April 2011 through June 2013, Hui sexually assaulted his victim on multiple occasions while he was staying with the victim’s family in Oak Brook, the release stated.

The abuse came to light when the victim told her father what Hui had done to her. Her father contacted the Oak Brook police who contacted the DuPage County Children’s Center, according to the release.

“For more than two years, Andrew Hui repeatedly sexually assaulted his young victim just to satisfy his own sick sexual desires,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said in the release.“What is particularly disturbing in this case is that Mr. Hui was an Army specialist and as such was trusted by the victim’s family and looked up to and admired by his victim. He repaid the trust and admiration placed in him by sexually assaulting his young victim time and time again.”

On the predatory criminal sexual assault charges, Hui received 72 years to be served at 85 percent On the aggravated criminal sexual abuse charge, he will be required to serve three years of the sentence at 50 percent. The sentences will be served consecutively resulting in the 75 sentence.
