Judge Susan Clancy Boles accepted the plea in which prosecutors dismissed charges of a hate crime and aggravated battery in a public place, a felony that carried anywhere between probation and seven years in prison.

Patton and two other men were charged with felonies after a Jan. 6 dispute in a bar in the 2000 block of Lincoln Highway (Route 38) near closing time spilled out into the parking lot. Patton was accused of throwing a drink in a woman's face before the trio, according to police and court documents, punched two men while yelling anti-gay slurs.

Two other men, who also were from St. Charles, pleaded guilty to reduced charges.

Christopher M. Miner, 31, of the 100 block of North 15th Street, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery and got a year of probation. He also served 63 days in jail because he could not post bond.

Stephan C. Bolt, 31, of the 4N0-99 block of East Mary Lane, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery and was fined $2,000.
