Police informant part of prostitution sting

An informant police are calling “Nicky” is at the center of a major prostitution sting in LaSalle County.

Nine men are charged with solicitation of a sex act including the now former Sandwich Mayor Rick Olson, Illinois Valley Community Hospital Executive James Schaefer, and Putnam County attorney Roger Bolin.

Olson resigned earlier this week.

Court documents show that the men offered Nicky money for sex acts in the last few months.

Bolin is also accused of grabbing her shoulder and pulling her toward him.

All nine men are due in court at the end of the month.
