Kewanee Man Adds Violation of Order of Protection Charges While in Custody


The Kewanee man charged over a year ago with Battery to a child and drug charges violated an Order of Protection when he called the protected party from jail.  William Borsch, 40, was charged with two counts of Violating a Protective Order from a phone call he made from the Henry County Jail to the protected party on May 25, 2023.  Borsch is charged with Violate Order/Prior Domestic (Class 4 Felony) and Violate Order of Protection (Class A Misdemeanor). A Preliminary Hearing is scheduled for June 5, 2023, at 2 PM.  Borsch is in custody of a $200,000 (10%) bond.  A Jury Pre-Trial is scheduled for June 22, 2023, at 1 PM for all other pending cases.

William Borsch was served a Order of Protection on May 17, 2023, and both parties indicated they would hire private counsel at the May 30th Protection Order hearing.  The hearing was continued to June 20th.  Bond conditions were amended for Mr. Borsch in May of 2022 because he was contacting the minor child and her mother while he was in custody.  Because of the wording on the bond condition, Mr. Borsch didn’t violate the no contact order because he was still in custody.  Judge Cosby amended the Bond Order to say “No contact with the victim or the mother of the child” “No contact Period”.

Borsch is charged with Theft ,$300/Prev Conviction (Class 4 Felony) and Retail Theft <$300 (Class A Misdemeanor) for case 21CF394;  Delivery 15<100 Grams of Heroin (Class X Felony), Possession of 15<100 Grams Cocaine (Class 1 Felony) and Aggravated Battery to a Child <13/Bodily Harm (Class 3 Felony) for case 22CF44;  Obstruct Justice/Destroy Evidence (Class 4 Felony) and Violation of Bail Bond/Family Member (Class A Misdemeanor) for case 22CF54; Domestic Battery/Bodily Harm (Class A Misdemeanor) for case 22DV2; Violate Order/Prior Domestic (Class 4 Felony) and Violate Order of Protection (Class A Misdemeanor) for case 23CF130.
