John Rokusek arrested Thursday; could face up to 200 counts

Prosecutors say that a Quincy businessman, arrested Thursday and accused of video taping people without their permission, faces five counts and could face up to 200 counts.

John Rokusek made his first appearance Friday in Adams County Circuit Court. He's been charged with five counts of felony unauthorized video recording. Each count has a 1 to 3-year prison sentence, and a 25 thousand dollar fine. At Friday's hearing, prosecutors said they found evidence of the illegal taping from as far back as 2019. They added that the taping happened between 2019 and Thursday in a locker room at Rokusek's business on South 18th Street. He was arrested Thursday after police stopped his vehicle at 14th and Jefferson. Prosecutors say that police found up to 200 images, and that two victims came forward earlier Thursday about the recordings.

Rokusek is free on $100,000 bond, and will have a preliminary hearing November 24th.
