A River Forest man who faces two separate indictments of child sexual assault will be in court again later this month for another status hearing.
Robert Gaskill, a former publishing executive who has been on electronic monitoring since March 2012, is expected to appear, Nov. 25, in Maybrook court before Cook County Judge Noreen Love.
One hearing was continued by agreement in October. A special order was approved in late September sealing a part of the file in this case. A spokesman for the Cook County Circuit Clerk speculated that this happened because the alleged victim in the case was a minor.
No trial date has been set yet, the spokesman said.
Two women came forward in January 2012, alleging to River Forest police that Gaskill sexually assaulted them when one was between 12 and 17 years old and the other between the ages of 6 and 9.
Gaskill and his wife, Mary, had operated a foster care service out of their Ashland Avenue home since 1992.
In August, Love signed an order allowing Gaskill more opportunities to see his children.
