CHICAGO | A real estate attorney is free while his nephew is being held at the Cook County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bond on criminal charges they sexually assaulted an 18-year-old who was unconscious.
Stanley Stallworth, 50, of Chicago, and nephew Therrie Miller, 22, of Dolton, are charged with criminal sexual assault and had bond set at $150,000 each during an appearance last week at the Criminal Courts Building, according to the Cook County state's attorney's office.
Officials with the Cook County Sheriff’s Police said Monday that Miller remains at the County Jail, while Stallworth was able to post bond. The Cook County state’s attorney’s office said both men will appear in court Dec. 26.
Stallworth is a partner at the Sidley Austin law firm, with which he has been associated since 1990 and specializes in real estate law. The law firm’s website Monday indicated he was on leave.
During the bond hearing, prosecutors said the 18-year-old male victim met Miller last month at a barber shop in South Holland. A day later, Miller invited the 18-year-old to meet him at his uncle’s home in the Bronzeville neighborhood.
Prosecutors said in court the 18-year-old was pressured into consuming a drink and a half before he lost consciousness.
Prosecutors said the 18-year-old told them when he became conscious again, he found Miller sexually assaulting him. When he tried to resist, he said Stallworth then performed a sex act on him before the 18-year-old lost consciousness again, according to prosecutors.
Prosecutors said that Miller took the man home the next day, and the man went to Franciscan St. Margaret Health hospital in Hammond after telling his mother about the incident.
