Mokena man sent sex video of ex-girlfriend to her family: records

A Mokena man has been arrested on a charge alleging he sent a video of his ex-girlfriend engaged in a sexual act to members of her family.

On Tuesday, Jeffrey Baker, 52, of the 20100 block of East Brightway Road was arrested by Frankfort police officers and taken to the Will County jail on a charges of nonconsensual dissemination of private sexual images and violating a protective order.

At Baker’s bond hearing Wednesday, prosecutors said on Dec. 31 he sent a video to family members of a woman he was dating that showed her performing a sexual act.

Baker was also charged with violating a protective order petitioned for by the same woman when he sent text messages to her and called her.

A prosecutor recommended a $30,000 bond for Baker while a public defender asked for a reasonable bond after arguing Baker was not charged with a violent offense or an offense against minors.

Judge Brian Barrett set Baker’s bond at $20,000. Baker must post $2,000 for his release from jail.

Barrett also ordered Baker to be placed under house arrest, GPS monitoring and not to use the internet or social media as a condition of his bond.

Baker’s ex-girlfriend’s protective order that was filed Jan. 8 had claimed he called her 13 times and texted her 91 times in one day. Her protective order further claimed he threatened her with a gun and that he sent a sexual video of her to her family.

“I fear for my life and I am scared of what he is capable of because he threatened my life,” her protective order said.
