Winnetka Man Acquitted of Sexual Assault Says Reputation Damaged By Charge
Alan G. Rottman was found not guilty of aggravated sexual assault.
Winnetka resident Alan G. Rottman was found not guilty of aggravated sexual assault after Cook County Circuit Court Judge Garritt Howard ruled there was insufficient evidence of the crime and inconsistencies in statements on Jan. 23, Chicago Tribune reported.
Rottman was arrested in July 2011 and charged with abusing the daughter of a Wilmette woman he was dating. Wilmette detectives had been investigating Rottman since August 2008, when they were notified of the incident, which reportedly occurred in Wilmette.
Rottman, 50, a retired futures and commodities trader, says even though he was acquitted of the charge, his reputation has been damaged and that he’s tattooed for the rest of his life just by the charge alone because it will always live on the Internet, Chicago Tribune reported.
