Alan Wyman, a recently convicted rapist and kidnapper, is the subject of my column in the current issue of the Reader. Among other things, Wyman was a writer, and in May of 2007 he submitted an article to the Reader, a long first-person account of his friendship with a prostitute living in the shuttered Nortown Theater. Wyman sent us the story from the Cook County Jail. Among the reasons he’d been there the past seven and a half months were charges that he’d kidnapped and sexually assaulted his friend, the prostitute. (He hasn’t been tried on those charges.)
