Duke

JANESVILLE - A Rockford man who was arrested following a standoff Wednesday at a Burton Street apartment could face extradition to Winnebago County over a sex assault charge.

Alexander F. Duke, 32, is charged in Rock County with first-degree recklessly endangering safety and kidnapping after allegedly shooting a gun at a woman during an argument on March 28 at her apartment in the 2200 block of Burton Street, before forcing her into a vehicle and driving to his Rockford residence, according to Rock County court records. The woman reportedly told Rockford authorities Duke physically and sexually assaulted her.

Duke appeared Thursday afternoon in Rock County Circuit Court.

In its request, the Winnebago County (Illinois) State's Attorney's Office requested Rock County hold Duke on a $750,000 cash bond while the extradition request was pending. Winnebago County requires defendants post 10% of bond set, while Rock County does not use the same scale.

Court Commissioner Jodi Timmerman ordered Duke be held in custody on a $75,000 cash bond for the extradition request and $40,000 cash bond for the Rock County charges. She ordered Duke have no contact with the victim or possess any firearms as his court case progresses.

After his bond amounts were ordered and conditions read to him, Duke became agitated and told Timmerman he did not understand the terms of the agreement.

Timmerman ordered public defender Eric Nelson to discuss the terms of the bond order with Duke.

Duke will appear next before Rock County Judge Barbara McCrory on July 24.
