- Photos (1)
A 25-year-old man was sentenced to 17 years in prison for his role in a summer 2012 early-morning home invasion in Elgin in which a man and woman were severely beaten with an iron, chair and computer monitor.
Modesto Rosales, of the 300 block of Wilcox Ave., Elgin, faced up to 30 years in prison for the attack on his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend.
Jaime Zarate, 28, of the 500 block of Willis Street, Elgin, also faces charges in the attack, and is next due in court Feb. 5.
The pair are accused of kicking down the front door of a home in the 400 block of Raymond Street at about 3:20 a.m. June 23, 2012, and beating the victims with their fists and other objects.
Prosecutors said both victims suffered serious injuries, including broken teeth and cuts to their faces, heads, necks and arms. The victims will have permanent scarring because of the attack, which was witnessed by the young son of the female and Rosales, prosecutors said.
Rosales pleaded guilty to home invasion Thursday in exchange for prosecutors dismissing attempted murder charges. Judge Susan Clancy Boles accepted the plea.
Rosales must serve 85 percent of his sentence under Illinois law.
