On Saturday, January 12, 2019, officers from the Rockford Police Department conducted an undercover operation in District 2 targeting people attempting to purchase sex, commonly called “Johns”.
The operation is part of the department’s “end demand” approach to combating street-level commercial sex trade. As a result, officers took three men into custody, and they were charged.
Marcus Evens, 47, Rockford: Solicitation of a Sexual Act, Battery
Nathan Weingartner, 40, Machesney Park: Solicitation of a Sexual Act
Andre Nelson, 52, Madison, Wis.: Solicitation of a Sexual Act, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Suspended/Revoked License
The charges against Evens, Weingartner, and Nelson are merely accusations. The men are considered innocent unless proven guilty in court.
