Sexual Assualt Trial Set to Start 2 Years After Incident

Sussex woman told a detective that a Palatine man she met on a biker's website sexually assaulted her when she was passed out on pain medication, according to a criminal complaint.

An Illinois man is scheduled to stand trial in April for allegations that he sexually assaulted a Sussex woman he met on a biker’s website.

Rick J. Corbin, of Palatine, is charged with second-degree sexual assault with an unconscious victim. Corbin was in Waukesha County Circuit Court on Friday for a hearing on the assault charges. Corbin, who is incarcerated at Robinson, IL, Correctional Center, is scheduled to have a trial begin April 30.

According to a criminal complaint:

A Sussex woman reported she was sexually assaulted by Corbin, 47, whom she met through a biker’s website, at her home in March 2011.

The woman told a detective she hadn’t met Corbin in person before the incident, but Corbin was at the residence drinking beer while they talked until 2 a.m. Since it was late, the woman told Corbin he could sleep over but that nothing sexual could occur.

The woman took pain medication she needed from a recent surgery and fell asleep about 15 minutes later after telling Corbin she would be knocked out by the medication. At some point during the night, the woman told the detective, Corbin was having sex with her.

The woman reported she confronted Corbin, who responded that he “probably shouldn’t of” had sex with her and that he should have used protection. The woman received a sexual assault kit a few days later.

Corbin told the detective they had sex, but it was while she was conscious. He told the detective the woman hadn’t been drinking but he was not sure if she had taken any medication.
