A sex offender who rented living space in a Bloomington woman's home has been charged with sexually assaulting her daughter.

McLean County Court records indicate 25-year-old Charles Radcliffe has been charged with predatory criminal sexual assault, aggravated battery of a child and other counts. He has not entered a plea and doesn't yet have an attorney.

Police arrested Radcliffe Monday after the girl told a teacher she had been assaulted. The girl is younger than 12.

Assistant State's Attorney Jacob Harlow says Radcliffe moved in with the woman months ago.

Authorities say the mother knew about Radcliffe's history and that the girl told them he slept in her room.

Radcliffe was convicted in 2007 of assaulting a teenaged girl.
