9 Sexual Predators Live In Shorewood: 2020 Safety Map | #predators | #childpredators | #kids

SHOREWOOD, IL — Before kids go out trick or treating on Halloween, fall is a good time to take an inventory of who is living in your neighborhood. Shorewood currently has nine registered sex offenders listed on the Illinois Sex Offender Registry.

All of Shorewood’s offenders are classified as sexual predators. Two of Shorewood’s sexual predators list the Econo Lodge near the Interstate 55 exit as their permanent place of residence.

One of Shorewood’s newest sexual predators who has moved into the community this year is 31-year-old Cordale Hallin. He lives on Countryside Drive. He was previously convicted of child pornography and sexual assault of a child, here in Will County.

Another of the new predators to move into 19755 NE Frontage Road, which is the Econo Lodge, is 40-year-old Phillip Bone.

Bone committed aggravated criminal sexual assault when he was 18 and his victim was 6, the Illinois State Police registry records reflect.

Pins on the map represent addresses of offenders convicted of sex crimes. Roll your cursor over the pins, and you will see more information pop up, including the registered sex offender’s name, address, current age, convictions, and the age of the offender and victim at the time of the offense.

Registered sex offenders are prohibited from passing out candy on Halloween. They may not appear in a Halloween costume or other child-centered holiday character, such as Santa or the Easter Bunny, in public. Registered sex offenders, however, may wear a Halloween costume in their home, according to the Illinois law.

You may want to avoid trick or treating at these houses and apartments on Halloween, or merely be aware of who’s living in your neighborhood during the rest of the year.

Law enforcement officials and researchers caution that the registries can play only a limited role in preventing child sexual abuse and stress that most perpetrators are known to the child.
The U.S. Department of Justice, which oversees the National Sex Offender Public Website, estimates that only about 10 percent of perpetrators of child sexual abuse are strangers to the child.

The Justice Department estimates 30 percent of child victims are abused by family members, while 60 percent of perpetrators are known to the child and are not family members but rather family friends, babysitters, child care providers and others. Nearly a quarter of abusers are under the age of 18 themselves, the department estimates.
