Rokusek pleads guilty to three felony counts, sentencing scheduled for April
QUINCY — The former owner of a Quincy marketing and advertising company has pleaded guilty to three counts of unauthorized taping and producing videos of multiple women at the company he owned.
John Rokusek, 60, pleaded guilty Thursday in Adams County Circuit Court before Judge Mark Vincent. In negotiations with the Adams County State’s Attorney’s office, Rokusek pleaded guilty to three counts and the state agreed to drop six other felony charges. He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 21.
Rokusek was originally found to have recorded more than 200 videos of people in a locker room/restroom area of Rokusek Design, 519 S. 18th, from Sept. 19, 2021 to Nov. 4, 2021 without their permission while they were showering or changing clothes.
He pleaded guilty to the unauthorized recordings on the dates of Oct. 24, 2021; Nov. 1, 2021 and Nov. 4, 2021.
Each count is a Class 4 felony and carries a sentence of one to three years in the Department of Corrections, but the deal with prosecutors carries a cap of seven years in total. Rokusek is eligible for truth in sentencing at the rate of 50 percent. He is eligible for probation.
Vincent will make the sentencing determination following the completion of the pre-sentencing investigation.
