Craigslist Rape Case May have Many More Victims

April 23rd, 2013 at 8:42 pm

According to a recent story by the Chicago Tribune, a Woodstock man contacted women who were offering sex for pay on the popular website, Craigslist. There have been 5 women identified in the case so far.

TheresaCharles Oliver arranged meetings with these women, who the court identified as being prostitutes and escorts. When he met with the women, he would eventually take them to his home in Woodstock. He then became violent with the women and forced them to engage in sexual acts with him. He threatened to kill several of the women and even tied them up and confined them to his basement.

When authorities searched his home, they found evidence that there may have been as many as 25 more women who were victimized. He had copies of identification cards and cell phones that he had taken from some of the women. Authorities are now working to locate the women whose personal belongings were found in his basement to determine if he had attacked them as well. Among the incriminating items that were found in his home were also thousands of photos that he had taken of him engaging in sexual acts with these women. Law enforcement authorities report that in some of the photos, the sex appears to be consensual, while in others it was clear that the women were forced.

Rape and sexual assault are very serious criminal charges that can be met with serious consequences if the accused suspect is convicted. If you have been accused of any kind of sexual misconduct or other criminal acts, you need to retain the assistance of an aggressive and knowledgeable Illinois criminal defense attorney to represent your interests.

An attorney should be retained before you even succumb to the questioning by the police. It is within your rights to have your attorney present during any questioning so that you do not accidentally incriminate yourself.
