A South Elgin man who was charged with felonies in threatening his 18-year-old daughter with a gun after she moved out, recently pleaded guilty to a lesser charge and was sentenced to two years probation, according to court records.

Federico Trevino, 51, of the 0-99 block of Diane Court, had faced up to three years in prison for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and unlawful restraint after his arrest in September 2012.

According to court records, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery and also must pay a $2,010 fine. Kane County Judge Clint Hull accepted the plea, records show.

Police said Trevino on Sept. 10 walked into a home on Saratoga Court and grabbed the teen by the arm and took her to his car. While in the vehicle, he pulled a small-caliber pistol and threatened her with it as he drove home. No shots were fired during the incident.

The teen was treated and released from St. Joseph Hospital in Elgin.

Authorities began investigating after a classmate called police Sept. 11 and asked police do conduct a well-being check at her house.

Trevino did not have any previous felony arrests, according to Kane County court records. The victim also obtained an order of protection against Trevino that runs through February 2017.

A message left for Trevino's defense attorney, Nischal Raval, was not immediately returned.
