Local photographer arrested on sexual assault charges after client claims she ‘lost consciousness’ during photo shoot, BCSO says

The photographer told investigators that the sexual encounter was consensual and the victim denied those allegations.

BEXAR COUNTY, Texas — A professional photographer has been arrested after a client claims she “lost consciousness” during a photo shoot with him.

The victim hired local photographer John Lill, 48, for boudoir photos and when she arrived at the location of the photoshoot, which was Lill’s residence, he allegedly requested that no one wait outside his residence during the session.

During the photoshoot, the victim claims she lost consciousness shortly after she was offered wine by Lill. After regaining consciousness, the victims believed that she has been assaulted by Lill, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office

The victim reported the alleged crime to BCSO and on May 4, deputies responded to Lill’s home in north Bexar County.

While deputies were gathering information from the victim, Lill allegedly left the residence in his vehicle before eventually returning and agreeing to speak with investigators. 

Lill told investigators that the sexual encounter was consensual and the victim denied those allegations.

Lill was arrested and taken to the Bexar County Jail and booked on a 2nd degree felony charge of sexual assault.

“The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office is now asking the community if anyone has been victimized by John Steven Lill during a photo shoot, to contact investigators at calling 210-335-6000 or email BCSOTIPS@bexar.org,” said BCSO.
