Student, dad shopped on teachers card
A Carol Stream man was sentenced to jail and probation Tuesday for taking his 12-year-old stepson shopping with a credit card stolen from the child's teacher.
Juan Chavez-Belmont also faces deportation after pleading guilty to a felony charge of contributing to the criminal delinquency of a minor.
The 31-year-old defendant was arrested in November after the stepson took a Visa card from his teacher's purse at Jay Stream Middle School in Carol Stream.
Assistant DuPage County State's Attorney Rob Willis said Chavez-Belmont used the card to buy two movies and two video games at a Redbox.
With the school's assistance, investigators identified Chavez-Belmont and his stepson after the card was rejected at Wal-Mart in Bloomingdale. Security cameras captured the defendant and the minor on video, Willis said in court.
On Tuesday, Judge Daniel Guerin sentenced Chavez-Belmont to two years' probation and jail time served since early November.
Authorities said Chavez-Belmont is not a legal U.S. resident and could be deported as a result of his conviction.
