Christopher Tatara – Child Molester threatens to "do it again"

He also told psychologist Ray Quackenbush that if he was released from prison, he would likely re-offend and, if his life was not going well, he might kill the victim, according to the petition. He said he had molested 58 victims, including the two rural McHenry girls involved in the criminal case.

Quackenbush’s report also indicated Tatara had tested positive for cocaine at birth and had claimed to be involved in occult practices since age 5. He said his heroes were serial killers and rapists John Wayne Gacy Jr. and Jeffrey Dahmer.

A 26-year-old former McHenry man who sexually assaulted two young girls about 10 years ago will remain in custody while authorities try to have him committed as a sexually violent person.

Christopher Tatara on Tuesday formally waived his right to a hearing to determine if there was probable cause to hold him.

Tatara will finish his eight-year prison sentence Feb. 17, Attorney General’s spokesman Scott Mulford said.

“Then at that point is when custody goes from the Department of Corrections to the Department of Human Services,” Mulford said. “He will be housed at Department of Human Services’ Rushville Treatment and Detention Facility.”

Tatara will appear before Judge Sharon Prather on March 27 for a status hearing.

Ultimately, a judge or jury could determine at trial whether he is sexually violent, which includes having a mental disorder.

If he is committed, he could request a hearing after six months, and then annually, to see if he has made enough progress to be released.

Tatara’s criminal convictions indicate he molested a 9-year-old girl in June 1999 and impregnated a 12-year-old girl in April 1999.

Tatara told a psychologist that he abused both girls multiple times a day for years, according to a psychologist’s report filed with the court Thursday.

When he was about 16, he convinced the older girl to run away with him for about two weeks so he could have sex with her. He initially blamed the girl for getting pregnant, but told the psychologist he no longer did.

He also told psychologist Ray Quackenbush that if he was released from prison, he would likely re-offend and, if his life was not going well, he might kill the victim, according to the petition.
