I cannot believe this article, or the law firm representing this pond scum. I was raped by this low life thirty years ago and for him to have any claim to innocence, is absurd! Maybe all of us victims should sue him since he just "fell into an inheritence" for mental anguish and emotional distress....

I hope you're right. To be honest, I would love for all of us victims to ban together. We need to fight to have him remain in prison, as well as possibly sue him for emotional distress, as well as thirty years of pain and suffering.

I too was a victim. I was the only one out of 17 that did not get raped, but it was still the most horrific experience of my entire life. He pulled a knife and held it to my throat and told me not to scream or he would stab me. This incident has left me with panic disorder and agoraphobia, and I have never been the same since. My heart goes out to his other victims that were raped. I hope he rots in prison, and he never has the ability to get out and hurt anyone else.

I was locked up for a number of years with this man,know him personally. He never has admitted to this crime and is a very convincing Sociopath.
Chances are that he will never see the light of day for those of you worried about him. I believe he is a danger to society and his family should be ashamed to have supported him as they have all of these years.
He is very,very deceptive but in bits and pieces his true nature managed to surface. He is extremely knowledgable in the law,martial arts and extremely strong,seriously strong. A close eye is kept on him and the staff is well aware of his presence and abilities. He is a litigation expert and the State of Illinois has their hands full.
He has been deemed some sort of danger and passed a law just to keep him well beyond this actual "outdate"...he should have been freed a few years back is my understanding. Anyway,my sympathy to the victims and Im sorry to hear the otherside of this story.

As one of his victims as well. I can't believe this either. Too bad that knowing the Cook County sheriffs dept is not the greatest that there is no old evidence that can be tested for DNA I bet that would shut Brad up. May he continue to rot in jail...

When someone takes something from you without asking
something you will never get back
something that changes the entire course of your life
no matter how much they pay you are never the same
you can therapize, and anesthetize but you still feel the pain
you try to be better and not let them win
but they do, over and over again
they take part of your soul and leave a big hole
that never gets filled
you can try to fill it with people and things
but the hole is always there
people like to say they understand
but no one, even you sometimes really can.
Nothing should have this much control of your life
you should be able to heal
or at best just to daily deal
some say they are better and I would like to believe that is true
but how can you believe when it has yet to happen for you.
You try to be happy with the fact that they are still paying
to this very day but sometimes I think I would do anything
not to feel this way just for one day...

They need to look into unsolved murder in Evanston and others in north and west suburbs in the late 70's,that will keep him in forever.He is in for life anyhow, to many people on the outside that have his #.

There were more than 17 victims. I know because I was a victim but never reported it because it would have been more devastating to my mother than me. Not reporting it has bothered me more because if I had reported it he would have had more years thrown at him. Sorry. I was ashamed and scared.

I was at the YMCA Camp Echo ( age 12 or 13 years old) Summer early 1970's when this punk held a knife on me ! one night in the Cabin . I thought he would kill me . I am a guy . The fact is he needs to be put "to sleep" . We should not feed him any more. I hope his parents have passed away by this time as they were helping him to cover up /lied to the Police etc. They too had a hand in these rapes and assaults. They are definitely in Hell. I hope he reads this. Is he wearing a dress these days ?( he would have been 13 or so when he assaulted me with the knife). GEEEZ ! He/It has no Soul. Don't spend any more tax dollars on him. So there !
