BLOOMINGDALE MAN, 72, CHARGED WITH SEX CRIMES INVOLVING GLENVIEW MINOR
January 22, 2021
A west suburban man was recently charged with five felonies connected to alleged sexual crimes against a Glenview minor, police announced Wednesday.
Alan Lee Sisson, 72, of the first block of Fontaine Court, Bloomingdale, was charged with involuntary sexual servitude of a minor, child pornography involving both moving depictions and still images, grooming and indecent solicitation of a minor.
An investigation began Sept. 8, 2020, after a complaint was filed that Sisson was having “sexually explicit online conversations” with a 14-year-old Glenview resident, according to police.
Glenview Police Department investigators and members of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force conducted a search warrant at Sisson’s home Wednesday morning around 7 a.m., authorities said.
He was taken into custody “without incident” and was transported to the Glenview Police Department, police said. The Cook County state’s attorney’s office approved the charges.
In addition to the Task Force and the Illinois Attorney General’s office, the Bloomingdale Police Department also aided Glenview in its investigation.
