Two 17-Year-Olds Sentenced in Separate Incidents in Winnebago County


Two 17-year-olds are sentenced to full commitment in Department of Juvenile Justice, one of them could serve federal prison time following that sentence, in separate incidents in Winnebago County.

One of the 17-year-olds is serving for aggravated battery and aggravated arson. Her charges stem from two incidents dating back to 2014.

In January of 2016 she stabbed the father of her child several times. That victim survived. Previous to that incident, back in 2014, the girl set fire to the house of the same victim and attempted to light him on fire.

She was sentenced to full commitment at the Department of Juvenile Justice and could serve time in the Illinois Department of Corrections following that sentence.

A second 17-year-old was also sentenced to full commitment for possession of a firearm with no FOID card.

In January 2016, he was shot by another suspect. During the investigation of that shooting, police learned the juvenile possessed a gun but was ineligible for a FOID card.

The 17-year-old had previous criminal charges of attempted criminal sexual abuse, aggravated battery and mob action for an incident back in 2010.
