Chad E. A man who spent 20 years in prison for molesting boys in the s at Mooseheart School near Batavia is fighting efforts to have him committed indefinitely under the state's Sexually Violent Persons Commitment Act. Wahl, 46, formerly of Pekin, was arrested in Marchconvicted in early and sentenced to 21 years in prison for sexually assaulting and abusing six boys at the school.
Wahl worked as a "house parent" at the school and started a "reward program" to allow boys to sleep on the living room floor on weekends to watch movies, prosecutors argued. Most of the abuse took place during the reward periods, and he would shower his victims with gifts, ordering them not to tell anyone.
The victims were between 9 and 13 years old. Wahl was released from prison in Novemberbut ordered held by the state's Department of Human Services shortly after that as prosecutors at the Illinois attorney general's office sought to have him committed indefinitely. Under the law, a person can be committed to the state's Department of Humans Services for treatment until no longer deemed a danger to society if the person was: convicted of a sex crime; has been diagnosed with a mental disorder; and a jury concludes it is "substantially probable" the person will reoffend.
Wahl's defense attorney argues the state's case is insufficient and wants it dismissed, despite two d clinical psychologists who concluded Wahl was a pedophile and a danger to reoffend. Failure to plead those facts renders the complaint deficient," Wahl's defense attorney argued in court documents. Prosecutors contend Wahl not only refused treatment while in prison, but planned to set up a business to produce and distribute child pornography after his prison release. Wahl's case was in Kane County court this week and continued to June It was not immediately clear when attorneys argue for or against having the case dismissed.
