ST. CHARLES — Shammrie Brown formally asked a judge Thursday to remove him from the “burden” of electronic-home monitoring, in part because of how allegations tied an August sex assault have impacted his life.
Brown and two other Aurora men — Eric Stallworth and Corderro Pollard — are each charged with the criminal sex assault of a 25-year-old single mother from Joliet. Stallworth and Pollard are accused of having sex with the woman in the home they shared on Aurora’s West Side, while Brown is charged on grounds he knew the woman was intoxicated and didn’t stop the assault, according to prosecutors.
Authorities have said the woman had been drinking with the three men in Naperville before ending up at the home in the 1500 block of Kenilworth Place. Police also are looking into the possibility of similar incidents at the home.
All three are free after a judge lowered their bail amounts to $25,000 and placed them on the electronic monitoring program.
Brown and his attorney, Fred Morelli, asked Judge David Kliment to end the monitoring requirement because it has further added to Brown’s struggles since his arrest.
“He has been reduced from having a full-time job with Urban League working with young people to seeking odd jobs painting houses and other odd jobs as he is able to get,” the motion states.
Assistant State’s Attorney Pam Monaco, noting electronic home monitoring already has been removed from Stallworth and Pollard, did not object to Brown’s request, and Kliment ordered the monitoring removed.
