Tiffany & Carl Horak - Tag teaming Child Molesters

A Wauconda Township woman pleaded guilty to molesting an 8-year-old boy Wednesday and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.

As part of her negotiations, Tiffany Horak, 26, agreed to testify that her husband, Carl, molested the same child.

Both she and Carl Horak, 25, were arrested in January when a relative of the victim learned of the abuse and went to police.

The acts took place between last fall and the early part of this year, Lake County Assistant State's Attorney Ari Fisz said.

Both Horaks, of 28088 Lake Drive, were charged with multiple counts of predatory sexual assault of a child, and faced up to 30 years in prison if convicted of any count.

Tiffany Horak pleaded guilty to a single count of that crime, and Fisz agreed to drop the remaining charges.

Fisz said she has previously been convicted of aggravated battery and deceptive practices, and was on parole for theft at the time of her arrest.

Carl Horak is held on $500,000 and is scheduled to appear in court today.
