Psych report: accused rapist unfit for trial

WOODSTOCK – An Elgin man accused of raping a woman at a Woodstock motel was deemed to be unfit to stand trial, according to a psychologist's report.

Timothy E. Levis, 54, is charged with multiple counts of criminal sexual abuse by force stemming from an April 20 encounter in which his accuser, a 25-year-old woman, said she was raped at the Super 8 motel.

McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather on Monday ordered that Levis be transported to custody of the Illinois Department of Human Services for treatment and further evaluation.

After initially refusing to appear before the judge, Levis told the Prather he wanted a private attorney and that his assistant public defender had not adequately represented him. That's when Prather went on the defense.

"I know what you're attorney has done," she told Levis. "He has represented you very well in this matter."

Shortly after his arrest, Levis posted $10,000 and was released from custody. He was remanded back to the McHenry County Jail in early June when the judge increased his bond after he picked up new trespassing and disorderly conduct charges while on release. He remains in custody, unable to post the $30,000.

Prosecutors have said that Levis was violent and aggressive and that he harassed female jailers, asking them for oral sex.

His next court date is Aug. 18.
