In August of 2015, Rockford City Police Detectives started investigating after a victim came forward, with multiple complaints of abuse that they had suffered by the defendant, Jefferey Primm. The victim reported that on several occasions, Primm physically abused not only her, but two children as well. The abuse occurred at multiple locations in Winnebago County from as far back as 2013.
