Skillicorn calls for revoking pension of former Lake in the Hills deputy police chief
Rep. Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) is calling for the state pension of a convicted sex offender and former Lake in the Hills deputy police chief to be revoked, saying the village should explore legal options to halt the pension.
Skillicorn in a press release called former Deputy Police Chief Alan Bokowski to lose his pension after he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a girl and was sentenced to four and a half years in prison in February. Bokowski, who worked at the Lake in the Hills Police Department for more than 20 years, was no longer working at the department when the accusations were made, according to the release.
"Public servants who violate the public trust, especially in such an egregious fashion, should lose their pensions," Skillicorn said in the release.
"Lake in the Hills needs to explore every legal remedy to deny this pension," he said.
Skillicorn, who began serving in the House in January 2017 representing the 66th District, is known as a pension and budget hawk. The native of Fox River Valley began his public service as a trustee with the village of East Dundee board where he was an advocate for maintaining the village's tax levy freeze.
