'Porn Truck' Driver Showing Progress

Steven D. Dutton, who pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for trying to lure a teenage girl into porn-laden truck last year, is almost done completing his one year of court supervision.

It appears Steven D. Dutton, the man who pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for  last year, is showing progress, according to a Cook County judge.

Judge Thomas J. O'Hara has been overseeing Dutton's one year of court supervision, which will be concluded in November if all continues to go well.

At a hearing Wednesday, Aug. 14 in Markham, Dutton appeared in a charcoal gray suit and wearing glasses with a blue tint. He handed O'Hara a document which presumably contained records from Sertoma Centre, a physical and mental health facility where Dutton has been living and undergoing therapy.

Last June, near Riegal Oak Lane and 186th  Place and began asking questions about whether  she had a boyfriend and whether she needed a ride. He drove away after the girl told him she  lived close by, but then circled back, causing her to fear for her safety and dial 911.

In his pickup truck, found—among other things—pornography, rope, whips, dildos, women's underwear and a dashboard modified to include handcuffs. Authorities say he told officers that his intentions had been innocent.

Dutton's last hearing has been scheduled for Nov. 14.

"If everything is satisfactory, I will complete [the supervision] as satisfactory," O'Hara told Dutton.

I'm happy for him, but I still don't want him near my neighbors' children. Thank you, Patch, for keeping our community in-the-know.

Sheesh. Lock him up and throw away the key. One year court supervision? Is that really the best charge they could make stick and is that the most he could have been sentenced to? With his truck tricked out the way it was? Making progress. In what way? How to be more careful, the next time he tries this? The percentage rate for successfully treating that kind of mindset and behavior is extremely low. My mentally disabled son used to work at the Sertoma Center. We pulled him out when we went there, walked in the unlocked door, right into the work area where all the mentally disabled people were working and none of the supervisors were anywhere to be found. I hope this man had neither the desire nor the opportunity to have contact with any of the mentally disabled residents/workers. God, what does Thomas J. O'Hara see when he looks in the mirror?

I say, just cut off his dick then he might change his dirty mind about porn!
