Has the landlord accepted rent from the tenant as stated in the lease? If yes, then it would be considered a valid contract. Tenant has performed it's part of the contract by moving in and paying rent. The landlord has acknowledge the existence of the lease/contract by accepting the rental payments. You should contact your local legal aid office for help with how to proceed.
Have you tried calling the police department that arrested your father to obtain the report? I'm not sure how IL works but in FL, you can get a copy of the police report directly from the arresting agency. The other option would be the clerk of court in the county which your father was sentenced. You could try contacting them to see what procedures you must follow to get a copy of his criminal file from his case, specifically the police report. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
