Lake in the Hills, IL… A former LITH Deputy Police Chief, Alan Bokowski, was sentenced to 4 ½ years in prison after pleading guilty in McHenry County court to sexually assaulting a child between 13 and 17 years old.

Although Bokowski had been retired from the Police Department for many years at the time of the accusations against him, it was through his long-time employment with the village that he became acquainted with the girl’s family.

Because of his longtime employment, he is owed a pension.

However, State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-Crystal Lake) believes he should no longer be awarded that pension.

“Public servants who violate the public trust, especially in such an egregious fashion, should lose their pensions,” stated Rep. Skillicorn.

“Lake in the Hills needs to explore every legal remedy to deny this pension.”

The state has a law that allows DOC to charge prisoners for the cost of incarceration, but this law is not normally enforced due to lack of available offender funds.

In this specific case, due to his pension, Bokowski could afford to pay such charges.

  1. It won’t go anywhere….unless the SA can somehow charge Bokowski with grooming the victim while he was still employed with the LITH police.

    We have to get rid of the absurd pension guarantee in the Illinois Constitution.

    It will eventually become moot, because cities, counties and the State will be unable to pay, but there will be a lot of pain before we reach that tipping point.

    The City of Harvey is a canary in the coal mine.

  2. When did Skillicorn move from Dundee to Crystal Lake?

    Bit of stretch this headline grabber is making, isn’t it? Bootstrapping his plan to take away his pension based the ASSUMPTION that he met a neighboring Crystal Lake family and that they trusted him because of his employment by LITH even though all allegations against him occurred well after his retirement is ridiculous.

    That Bokowski should be required to reimburse the state the costs of his incarceration is sound, provided that is what EXISTING law says and the state makes a reasonable effort to do that across the board, not just the low hanging fruit. There are plenty of criminals who are not Chicago, empty pocket, gang bangers and dopers in prison who could pay the piper in addition to serving the time.

  3. How dare Skillicorn! He’s threatening to take 15% of all Illinois pensionerrs off the rolls!

    Good Lord! What’s the libtard world coming to!

    Yes, I get it, the state’s dying economically and the productive base is dying off or moving to sunnier climes (which is like EVERYWHERE, BUT ILLINOIS!).

    But come on, Alan!!

    Will the Donkeys and RINOS and all their misshapen spawn sit for something like this??!!

    This all came up in the Fox Lake PD Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz matter. http://beta.nydailynews.com/news/national/fox-lake-personnel-file-full-complaints-article-1.2425718

    But no one batted an eye when Lady Gliniewicz oinked for her self-slain husband’s fat pension.

    Skillicorn should retitle his bill “Taxpayer Protection Act by Removing Pension-Pukes” before King Madigan kills the bill.

  4. I always worry about the guy who whines the most about a topic. History (even in McHenry County) has shown …..
