Police: Chicago Man Kicked Out of Orland Park Pool for Touching Himself

Several people said they saw the man fondling himself while in different areas of Centennial Pool, including the locker room and public spots.

A Chicago man was banned for life from the pool in Orland Park after multiple people reported that he was touching himself inappropriately while in public areas, according to an Orland Park police report.

Jorge L. Martinez, 42, of the 4500 block of West 55th Street in Chicago, was charged with disorderly conduct.

Police were called to the around 6 p.m. about a man seen by pool staff and patrons with his hand down his shorts at various places around the pool, including the locker room and an outdoor pavilion, police said.

At one point, he placed a backpack on his lap that concealed what he may have been doing, according to the report. Though pool staff and patrons later said they could see he was touching himself under his shorts, police said.

After talking with the responding officer about the accusations against him for several minutes, “Jorge did not seem to want to speak anymore,” according to the report.

Martinez was banned for life from the Orland Park pool.

He is scheduled to be in court next on Aug. 6.

9/10th's of all 'south-siders' moved away from the Midway area and 55th street due to changing neighborhoods and property values going down. The people that bought these wonderful expanded homes, for 1/2 price or less... Now want to ruin our current neighborhoods either by theft, vandalism, predatory felonious acts upon us or worse-our children... Stay in what is NOW-your neighborhood...if your neighbors got wise to you... Go get a job make money goto a vacation resort where there are Others like you-looking for your type of lifestyle. Stay out of mainstream USA... You are Not wanted.

Next day in court is Aug 6. and that will probably be a continuance. Now that is too long. He should be court today! Why are there back logs? Because of Judges like the Will County jerk watching PORN! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

This is how these guys start out and they keep getting a free pass then years later they become the bad guy in the Jaycee Dugard case or Elizabeth Smart or Polly Kloss cases. Wheres the surprise? Why dont we screw the 3-strike BS and go with a one strike law. They feed us garbage that the judges can only go with what the law allows... Yet continously these repeat offenders are let go by the system to recommit repeatedly.... Dont even get me started on that judge in Will County..Elected officials. I've lived in Orland on/off for 42 yrs. I voted to pay extra taxes to have the pool. Ive never been to the pool. Do you think i want to bring my 5yr old daughter now? Im trying to sequester her from all the crap I experienced by default, from seeing in my old neighborhood-by Midway airport. These morons continue this perverse behavior because they are repeatedly allowed to get away with it. Everyone wants it to be somebody eles headache.

This pool needs to have a residencey requirement - you can only enter if you are a resisident or enter with a resident.
The Frontman July 16, 2012 at 07:44 PM
Pro Con, He still could of been a guest of a resident. Sick is sick, and these guys tend to have their own little group. Kudos to the pool staff for catching this guy in the act.

I totally disagree. Not only shouldn't they not allow one creep to ruin it for the 1000's of decent non-resident users who come, but its a good asset for Orland. Not only does this park make money (higher rates for non-residents), but they draw non-residents into town, who will often stop at other Orland restaurants and stores before or after going to the park. Again, spending more money in Orland, which ultimately helps all the Orland residents.

Orland pool should be for Orland residents ONLY!!!!!

No one can guarantee that there are no OP residents with similar disorders. Glad the pool staff was alert.
Robert July 18, 2012 at 12:43 AM
Disorder? This is no disorder, this is sexual deviant, perverse, behavior. Bad behavior. If he had a record of being a sex offender, I suppose he would have been arrested. No record, I guess it's legal.
The Frontman July 18, 2012 at 01:04 AM
Robert, He was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. The photo above was his "mug shot." Disorder is a catch-all term that Terri used obviously to address abnormal behavior/thinking. People who think logically and rationally, odds are, aren't touching themselves in public. I understand the outrage, but sexual deviancy is a disorder.

These individuales that believe in public indecency are sick, twisted, and have no regards of the laws, or the public at large that are affected by they're lude acts!! The pubic comments you good folks write do nothing to solve this issue. In other countries around the world... Iran for example, this guys anatomy would be removed on site... Then an execution would take place immediatly following. We are to passive towards these losers, and our system of corrupt justice is so beneath what it needs to be, i'm not suprised by this jag-moe, or the others who never get caught!! We need to thin the heard, and take back that which is ours...That means if we all make the efforts to police the society...and tell big brother to stop just looking, and really "watch" the system... Then Vigilantism wont be required on my behalf!! Give me one minute with this guy alone, and these so called statistics will go down expenentually!! The Legal Eagle"

Good to see that people are waking up. COMMON SENSE AND SWIFT JUSTICE! Catch it, you will like it. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
The Frontman July 18, 2012 at 06:11 PM
Vokist, Go ask the owners of Ashford House if "Vigilatism" worked on their behalf in May.....
voklst July 18, 2012 at 11:01 PM
F m, You took what I wrote -out of context- I would never be a Vigilante. And the system will never work to my satisfaction. I used to goto a YMCA pool at 5200 S. Homan ave. Until all of the cars got broken into. The neighborhood was 'changing'... So my scuba club chose safer digs at a pool in Oak Lawn.. The pool on Homan Ave had just been refurbished-rebuilt- Repainted-new filtration system. All for naught, they closed it down shortly after. So those folks from this guys neighborhood can now swim in Oak Lawn or Orland Parks Centennial Pool....
