After 4 years, there is no justice for a 93-year old victim raped in a nursing facility by 22- year old certified nursing assistant, Jason Thomas Curl. , The attack occurred in 2005.
In 2005, a Kankakee Grand Jury handed down an indictment against Curl on 3 counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault- a Class X felony.
A little interesting background on Tomczak, he was the former State's Attorney for Will County. The same place where Kathleen Savio's death was initially ruled a suicide. The same place where according to documents and letters sent to the Will County State's Attorney office at the time, under his care, was slammed in the face of a woman, married to a law enforcement officer, seeking assitance. Savio's plea's for help fell on deaf ears. Had the correspondence authored by Kathleen Savio and the filing for orders of protection along with photo's of the beatings she suffered at the hands of her abuser been admitted into court at the inquest, in my opinion, other lives might have been saved. First and foremost, Stacy Peterson.
The case is not scheduled until after the election on November 4. [Kankakee County Court Records, Case No. 05-CF-435]
In the meantime, a no, 26-year old Curl, accused sexual predator has been out of jail on bond, free and awaiting a trial that may never come. If Curl’s accuser dies prior to her being able to testify, or her lucidity is called into question again by the defense due to her age, it is likely that charges will dropped.A former prosecutorial and political powerhouse, Jeff Tomczak knows how to play ball. And so it seems does a man who holds an office that I consider, important. A State's Attorney is a gatekeeper. And when a gatekeeper allows a sexual predator to walk the streets, we are all in danger.
Lets call into State's Attorney Jamie Boyd's Office and ask: Why he is delaying a very important case? Afterall, playing golf with a close buddy, is one thing. Playing with the life of a helpless elderly rape victim is another matter!
