A man who was charged twice in the span of a few hours last winter with urinating in public in Naperville has been ordered to perform community service work to settle the first of those cases.
Roberto Ocampo pleaded guilty Wednesday to a city of Naperville ordinance violation, on a charge of urinating or defecating in public, specifically, in the doorway of a bar in the city’s downtown, according to records on file in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton.
Associate Judge Mary E. O’Connor, who presides over the Naperville municipal courtroom, accepted Ocampo’s plea and ordered him to perform 30 hours of public service work as part of his penalty, records showed. She also placed him on six months of supervision and assessed unspecified fines and legal fees, records indicated.
Naperville police were called about 2:01 a.m. Feb. 23 to 16 W. Chicago Ave. Club Mamalu, Features Bar & Grill and Frankie’s Blue Room operate there under the same roof.
Ocampo, 23, of near-west suburban Elmwood Park, had been seen urinating in the front door of one of the bars, police Sgt. Bill Davis said in February, although he did not know which of the doorways Ocampo selected.
Patrol officers then took Ocampo to the police station, 1350 Aurora Ave., for processing. Davis said Ocampo soon after allegedly urinated on the floor of the holding cell into which he had just been placed.
It was not known whether Ocampo was physically unable to keep himself from urinating in either case, or if he did so out of anger. Davis said written police reports contained no information about Ocampo’s motivations.
Ocampo still faces trial on a misdemeanor charge of criminal damage to property in the alleged incident in the police cell.
Court records indicated Ocampo failed to appear April 1 for a scheduled hearing in that matter, with a judge issuing a bond forfeiture warrant for his arrest. A May 6 court date has been set in that case, according to records.
