St. Charles is a city in DuPage and Kane counties. The city is about 64 miles north of Braidwood.
On the same day, Gosz was accused of traveling to Braidwood to meet with a 14-year-old girl “for the purpose of a sexual act in exchange for a cellphone,” according to a statement from the Braidwood Police Department.
