A River Forest man facing two separate indictments of child sexual assault will get expanded visitation rights with his children, a Cook County circuit court judge ordered Monday.

The order, signed by Judge Noreen Love, will allow Rob Gaskill to immediately start seeing his children more often, his attorney Ellen Domph said. She declined to give details.

Gaskill sat in the Maybrook court, surrounded by a few friends and family, during his latest court appearance. He will return to Maybrook Court on Sept. 30 when motions related to the case will be argued.

The former publishing executive has been on electronic monitoring since March, 2012 when he pled not guilty to charges of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child.

Two women came forward in January 2012, telling 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.

No trial date has been set, Domph said, although matters are moving forward.
