Glasgow Announces Radetski Sentenced to Seven Years for Child Pornography and  Indecent Solicitation of a Child

Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow announces that Joshua Radetski, 46, of  Lake Zurich, was sentenced Tuesday to 3 years in prison for Child Pornography (a Class 2 felony)  and 4 years for Indecent Solicitation of a Child (a Class 3 felony). Radetski pled guilty today and  was sentenced by Circuit Judge Amy Bertani-Tomczak. 

On October 7, 2021, Joliet Police were dispatched to La Mex restaurant on Jefferson Street in  Joliet where defendant Radetski was putting on a wig and another individual was filming them.  The individual informed the officer that he had created a fake profile on a dating app through  which he communicated to Radetski as a 16-year-old girl named “Kelly.” They later  communicated through text messages in which Radetski texted “Kelly” regarding his desire to  engage in explicit sexual acts with her. The two communicated about meeting up at La Mex for  sex. When Radetski arrived, the police were notified. After Radetski admitted to messaging what  he believed to be a 16-year-old-girl to meet up at La Mex for sex, police confiscated his cell  phone which was found to contain images of child pornography including images of female  children under the age of 13 engaging in sexual acts with adult men. The cell phone also led  investigators to another minor female with whom Radetski had been having sexual encounters in  Cook County. 

“Joshua Radetski preyed upon young girls, fueled by the revolting images of child pornography  he kept on his cell phone,” Glasgow said. “The children in those images are also victims and, because images are permanent and available through almost every internet platform, these victims are left with a lifetime of re-victimization by knowing their abuse will always be on the internet for anyone to see.”

The sentences will run consecutively and be served at 50 percent. Radetski will also serve a 10- year registration period on the Illinois Sex Offender Registry. He will receive 733 days credit for  time served in jail and on electronic monitoring on the Child Pornography sentence, and 882  days credit on Indecent Solicitation of a Child. Additionally, in the Cook County case, Radetski  will be serving 6 years each for two counts of Child Pornography and 6 years for Aggravated  Criminal Sexual Abuse, to be served consecutively. 

Glasgow thanked Assistant State’s Attorney Katie Rabenda and the Joliet Police Department for  their hard work and dedication in this sensitive matter.
