Criminal Sexual Assault, Suspeicous Vehicle and Juvenile Incident
The report is marked, “Case Closed.”
There are eight pages in the report,.
One says that the McHenry Police declined to prosecute a charge of “public indecency.”
That was after the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office declined to pursue felony charges.
The case started with a townhouse resident calling the McHenry Police at 10:30 about “a dark colored SUV” being parked “at the dead end” of an uncompleted development.
The responding officer saw the vehicle lights were out.
He shined his spotlight on the black Toyota “and observed two subjects inside the vehicle.”
“The driver was not wearing a shirt, but had pants on.”
“The passenger was fully clothed.”
The driver was identified as Dominc Provenzano; the passenger’s name is redacted.
Provenzano is a former Republican McHenry County Board member.
Provenzano told the policeman that he was not wearing his shirt because he was hot, that the two were just “hanging out,” elaborating that they “were talking about life.”
Although most of the information about the questioning of the passenger is blacked out, the young man “admitted the encounter was sexual in nature.”
Provenzano was invited to come to the Police Station.to make a statement, but declined.
Speaking to one of the officers, the report says Provenzano “stated that he did not want to admit to anything, but stated the contact between him and [name redacted] was consensual in nature. That nobody forced or coerced each other to engage in any acts they did not eat to do, and h believed [name redacted] was eighteen(18) years old.”
The officer wrote that he “informed Dominic of my suspicions that due to the circumstances of the location of the vehicle, it was typical these encounters are sexual in nature.”
Congressman Hultgren and Provenzano parted ways on Monday.
