Illinois Sheriff Cited for Sex Act With Another Man in Metro East

​The sheriff of Perry County, Illinois, was charged with indecent conduct last Friday by a Caseyville police officer who observed him engaging in a sex act with another man in a parking lot.

In the early morning hours of December 16, Officer Gerard Spratt observed two males "on top of each other engaging in sexual activities together" inside a Ford Escort parked near Killon's Irish Inn, he stated in an incident report.

According to several news reports, one of the men in the car was Keith Kellerman, who is the sheriff of Perry County, which is located a short distance from Madison County. The other man in the car was J. Ian Stennett. Both men told Spratt that they were making out. Stennett's pants were unzipped and his shirt was unbuttoned. They both were intoxicated.

When Spratt asked the men why they chose to make out inside a parked car rather than the confines of home, Stennett replied "two guys don't usually do this kind of stuff at home," according to Spratt's incident report. (See the incident report here.)

Kellerman, a Democrat, was first elected sheriff of Perry County in 1998 and was re-elected last year, the Belleville New Democrat reports. We tried to reach him at the Perry County Sheriff's Department, but an office administrator said he was on leave and declined to comment further.

Each man was charged with an ordinance violation and is expected to appear in court on Jan. 12.

We were curious to know whether Kellerman would have been hit with an ordinance violation if he were caught messing around in a parked car with a woman instead. We left a message with Caseyville Village Attorney Duane Clark to see if the defendants' sexual orientations played any sort of role in this case and will update this post if he gets back to us.

Starsprings is right.  Law enforcement targets men.  Hetero couples get a wink wink and they either look the other way or tell them to move on.  Total Queer bashing.

of course it was because they were men. what a bunch of homophobia. Wanna know why? there are places all over the us where teens and adults go to fuck in their cars. They are called "Lover's Lanes" and other euphemistic/coy titles that belie the fact that straight people are there fucking each other when they could easily be at home, a motel, etc. But when two guys do it, its an ordinance violation? Why is it when two straight people are busted for fucking each other in their cars you never hear about it in the news like this? Oh yeah, that is because, unless they are stupidly intoxicated or doing WHILE driving, you never hear about it because THEY ARE NEVER ARRESTED FOR IT and then summarily Paraded publicly LIKE GAY MEN ARE! If that isn't 100% obvious to you then you are too busy having sex in your car to understand why.

Keith is a good cop, he just needs to get handy's from strangers every now and then. Not a big deal as long as he doesn't shoot stuff into the heater vents. Makes his patrol car smell "unprofessional". Keith is so misunderstood.

You know I'm just guessing he has a "God is Pro-Life" bumper sticker on his car.

It must also be said, the fact that this author chose to even publish this article-with two mens first and last names and then snidely ask us "Do you think this would have happened if the other person was female" is highly questionable. You posted the story and you are asking us? Plus you posted a photo that isn't even a booking photo. Its a photograph OF A PHOTOGRAPH, one that isn't even in good enough shape to be scanned-hell you can see the creases in the paper its on! between this and the "who is the sexiest cross dressing bankrobber" article elsewhere, what the hell kind of yellow journalism does this paper think is acceptable in this day and age? Do you publish the booking photos for every person caught for a crime like this? Bet you don't post guys who get caught paying a female prostitute for sex either. nowhere does it say he was married. No where does it say he was in the closet but because of the way you posted the details of the story, you have made it out that this person was 'getting it on' with someone he may have arrested-as they were 'in his police car.' I could have written a better article covering this same story when I was in high school. If the guy's 'crime' was that he wasn't supposed to use his cruiser in this manner, or that he was intoxicated-quite rightly-then lambaste him for that, not for having sex with another man.

Not True! We has some old guy get arrested here for banging a chick in his car. The Cops claimed the probable cause was the age difference. Police spotted a car without its headlights on and pulled it over in the 1000 block of Washington Avenue, according to reports. The officer saw a condom wrapper in the back seat, what appeared to be a used condom in the back seat, and noted a 47-year age difference between Maldonado and the female passenger, police reports stated.When an officer asked him to step out of the vehicle to question him, another officer spotted Maldonado's underwear around his ankle, sticking out from the bottom of his left pant leg, according to police reports. The woman told an officer she had sex with him for $20, according to police reports.Maldonado denied any wrongdoing, and denied paying the woman for sex or agreeing to pay the woman for sex, police reports stated.Read more: http://www.journaltimes.com/ne...
