Posted by wlpo on January 21, 2010

A Streator man was given 36 years after pleading guilty to kidnapping a woman and then sexual assaulting her.

38 year old George Zelanek was given 18 years each for kidnapping and aggravated criminal sexual assault.  He has to serve the terms back to back.  Zelanek must serve at least 85 percent of the total sentence.  He faced up to 60 years.

Zelanek was arrested in February of 2008 after allegedly kidnapping a woman from Streator and forcing her to perform a sex act.  Prosecutors say he followed the woman home from a bar and attacked her.  Her blood was found in Zelanek’s car.
