URBANA, Ill.(CN)- A downstate Illinois police officer sexually assaulted a woman and his partner and a Highway Patrolman covered it up, the woman claims in court.
Sarah Pyles sued the Village of Manteno, its police Officers Chadd Gagnon and Jason Forbes and Illinois state police Officer Cornelius Moore, in Federal Court.
Manteno, pop. 8,600, is 50 miles south of Chicago.
Pyles says in the complaint that she was on her way home from a charity event on Aug. 12, 2011, when she became disoriented and pulled into a gas station. Fearing she might be drunk, Pyles says, she parked at a gas station and called a friend to pick her up. While waiting, Gagnon and Forbes arrived in separate cars.
She says she spoke with the officers for about an hour, about "a number of subjects, including sports, tattoos, the clothing plaintiff was wearing and affairs."
She says Gagnon took her keys. "Defendant Gagnon finally told plaintiff that he wanted her to take a Breathalyzer test," the complaint states.
"Defendant Gagnon told plaintiff that if she blew under the legal limit, he would
let her go.
"Defendant Gagnon next told plaintiff that if she blew over the legal limit, he
would take her to a hotel."
She claims Gagnon told her the Breathalyzer machine was at the station and that he would drive her. She says Gagnon had her ride in the front seat of his patrol car and did not call in his mileage to dispatch.
"While en route to the Manteno Police Department, defendant Gagnon removed
his penis from his pants," the complaint states.
"Defendant Gagnon made a remark to plaintiff regarding how she was going to
'gag on' his penis.
"Plaintiff performed oral sex on defendant Gagnon while defendant Gagnon
drove to the Manteno Police Department."
At the station, Pyles says, she blew over the legal limit. When the results came back, Gagnon asked her she wanted to go to a hotel with him. This made Forbes laugh, Pyle says in the complaint.
"Defendant Gagnon then sexually assaulted plaintiff," the complaint states. "Plaintiff did not consent to the unwanted sexual contact, and defendant Gagnon was aware that plaintiff did not consent.
"Defendant Forbes had an opportunity to intervene and prevent the sexual assault on plaintiff by his partner, but failed to do so.
"Plaintiff told defendant Gagnon to stop assaulting her, and he finally did.
"Defendant Gagnon transported plaintiff back to the gas station and returned
plaintiff's car keys to her, even though he knew she was intoxicated.
"Defendant Gagnon left the scene and allowed plaintiff to drive away."
Pyles said she reported the assault and went to the hospital where a rape kit was administered. She claims Monroe talked to her the next morning and started an investigation into the attack.
Pyles claims Monroe did not take her accusation seriously and tired to cover it up.
On Dec. 15, 2011, Monroe testified before a grand jury that DNA from Pyles' rape kit excluded anything from Gagnon or Forbes, the complaint states. The next day, Pyles was indicted on two felony counts of disorderly conduct.
"On February 21, 2012, defendant Monroe received a report from the Illinois
State Police Division of Forensic Services that indicated plaintiff's DNA was found on
defendant Gagnon's underwear," the complaint states.
"Upon information and belief, defendant Monroe did not share this report with
the assistant state's attorney that was prosecuting plaintiff for the two felonies.
"At the time defendant Monroe received the February 21, 2012 report, plaintiff
had still not been arraigned on the two felony counts."
Despite this knowledge, Monroe forced Pyles - who had since relocated to California - to travel back to Illinois for a formal reading of the charges on April 30, 2012, Pyles says in the complaint.
" On October 11, 2012, Defendant Monroe appeared a second time before the
Grand Jury of Kankakee County," the complaint states.
"Defendant Monroe again testified at the Grand Jury how the DNA found in the
rape kit performed

on plaintiff excluded defendants Gagnon and Forbes.
"At this Grand Jury, however, defendant Monroe never testified about the DNA
test of defendant Gagnon's underwear. At this Grand Jury, defendant Monroe had already received the February 21, 2012 report that indicated that plaintiff's DNA was in fact discovered on defendant Gagnon's underwear."
Pyles claims the charges against her were dropped after her defense attorney found the DNA test results.
She seeks actual and punitive damages for unreasonable search and seizure, failure to intervene, malicious prosecution, and constitutional violations.
She is represented by Louis J. Meyer, with Meyer & Kiss, of Peoria.

Both officers need to be fired!!! Or at least on admin leave. Gagnon who sexually assaulted the woman, and Forbes for not helping her. Why are these officers still working? How can this be? Is Manteno IL really that corrupt? You are correct, the people of Manteno need to step up and question why these guys are still in office. The mayor, Chief of police, and Village Directors have to know what is going on because the woman is suing the Village. Also, what about the state trooper that hid evidence that proved her story? Is he still employed? They tried to put her in jail and accused her of lying until her attorney found the hidden evidence of her DNA in the cops underwear and then the charges were dropped. This story is crazy! It's the stuff you see in the movies.

Both Forbes and Gagnon are scum who need to be fired and locked up. I can't believe how stupid Manteno is for keeping these losers working in the police department. I'm ashamed to live in this town. Manteno needs to stand by some morals and fire these creeps!!

Its not just Forbes and Gagnon its pretty much all the Manteno police especially Waylan and ex-police chief Keigher! They are all connected out there.They use snitch/criminal informants to set innocent people up in return for being of the hook of their crime!!And than they are back out on the streets. The police slander people who they don't like so no one likes them. How long do they get away from this before they are either jailed or fired when this happens again?? They have broken the bond of trust threw lies and deceit and the reason Forbes is still a cop is because they are in this together. Police, mayor, etc...

Has anyone read the case this blog pertains to? It only lists Gagnon, Forbes and a State Trooper that hid the DNA evidence. I cant believe that they actually tried to say the woman was lying and charge her with a felony, knowing the DNA evidence proved her story. Of course all of that was dropped when they found the DNA in Gagnon's underwear. Also, the chief of Police in Manteno says that she was lying because she was intoxicated? What kind of crap is that? Again, people of Manteno need to ask why these guys are still employed? I know there is 2 sides to every story, but as much research as I have done on this case and articles I have read, I cant find anything but GUILTY for the Manteno Police. Also the media in Manteno needs to write more about this case to get the information out there so people know who and what they are dealing with. Glad I don't live there!

So the Daily Journal who was following this story and posting comments about this story appears to have taken it off of their site. Why is that? Do they not want the public to see how corrupt Manteno is? This case should be public knowledge...any thoughts anyone?

My family moved out here in 2005 and have never been in trouble until we moved to Manteno. The cops go around with flyers posting them everywhere about the person they want gone. And on these flyers they slander the person with lies like they are dangerous, or drug dealers or drug addicts even pedophiles. Ive seen one of these flyers posted at Berkots, currency change, everyone who owns a business is told to call the police and when the police come they lie and arrest them without even asking the person being accused ofsome bullshit a chance to tell there side. And than the harassment and surveillance start constantly and not just the person but there whole family.Some school officials are in on it, its completely unconstitutional and disgusting!!! They steal from you by taking your house, your vehicle, and make sure you cant get a job so you become homeless. This is sickening!!! Is there anyone else having the same problems ???If so we need to get together , quit being scared and expose this crime and arrest those involved to the fullest!!! They keep the people in Manteno in the dark!!! This is nothing but organized crime! Lets do something. there is power in numbers!!!

If she cant be believed because she was drunk than why should the police officer be believed for not doing his job and arresting her instead of taking her for a joyride than bringing her back to her car to drive away. The police chief of Manteno sounds dumb and if he thinks his story is believable than he must be an idiot!!!

This is just unacceptable and starting to be a little too much for me!! What are we going do keep coming on here and talking about it??? We are just as much to blame than those officers for doing nothing!!! What about the police chiefs pedophile brother and the girls poor family that love her and want her back! but cant because his brother is obviously a part of organized crime!! Were are you at?? lets join together and do something trust me exercise your constitutional rights and you would be surprised how the truth comes out in court and is all recorded!! Lets quit being scared of the retaliation that we will most likely endure but idc anymore they have been harassing me for ten years anyway so im pretty used to it WTF what do I have to lose my life?? Who cares I lost that a long time ago. I know this worldwide but a change has to start somewhere even if it starts in the little town of Manteno. If anyone knew what they did to my family you would be terrified not to do something. I just read they want to hire just any old inexperienced nobody to roam are schools in Manteno with our children there with GUNS??? WHAT??? That crazy, im sorry but to a corrupt town it sounds like a school shooting in progress because everytime something happens they lie!! The police, the chief the schools LIE!!! PERIOD!! Its just like a false flag!! Its hard for people to understand that has not been a victim of police/military officers!!!Even if my whole theory on them carrying guns isn't true than explain it to me but instead we will never hear about it. It will just happen without our knowledge. If your not being abused, tortured etc... I understand people being skeptical but look at this world, research our history that they don't teach to our children than you will believe but don't say nothing unless you've down your homework. I would like to hear from the family of the girls that are being preyed upon I mean theirs records for sure. I would like to hear from anyone that is dealing with these cops that are already in military state!! Also look up fema camps because theres one in Manteno. Stop watching tv and research our history on the internet before its to late!There is power in numbers but we need to act now!Can you imagine what they are using the technology for because they don't tell you everything our tech is ridiculously crazy. Lets take our freedom and our country back. The end is near and it is not pretty. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!!
