Lanke admitted to police that he assaulted the woman while she was asleep, according to a criminal complaint. His lawyer, Kevin Abramovitz, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Lanke is charged with one count of involuntary sexual deviate intercourse, two counts of aggravated indecent assault and two counts of indecent assault, according to court documents.
