People v. Trotter

Illinois Appellate Court
Criminal Court
Sexual Assault
Case Number: 
2013 IL App (2d) 120363
Decision Date: 
Friday, December 13, 2013
2d Dist.
Winnebago Co.
Affirmed in part and vacated in part; remanded.
Defendant was convicted, after jury trial, of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, criminal sexual assault, and child abduction and unlawfully sending a travel ticket to a minor, after engaging in extended sexual relationship with 13-year-old girl he met while both were involved in community youth theatre production. Defendant exploited minor's immaturity and trustfulness and encouraged her participating in plan to accompany him to airport and fly to California. Evidence was sufficient that Defendant had lured minor into his car for unlawful purpose. Sentence for child abduction must be served consecutively to three criminal sexual assault sentences; and court should have ordered indeterminate MSR on each criminal sexual assault conviction.(HUTCHINSON and JORGENSEN, concurring.)
