A 52-year-old St. Charles man was sentenced to two years probation and fined $1,400 after recently pleading guilty to slashing a neighbor during a dispute last year, according to Kane County court records.
Edward E. Brubaker, of the 100 block of North 15th Street, can be resentenced to up to five years in prison if he violates probation for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Brubaker faced up to five years in prison on the felony charge.
Kane County Judge Karen Simpson accepted the plea agreement in which prosecutors dismissed other, less serious charges, records show.
According to police, Brubaker was arrested last June after a fight with a neighbor at a St. Charles apartment complex on North 15th Street.
He was accused of using a kitchen knife to cut a 23-year-old man twice on the right side of his arm.
The wounds were not life threatening and the male victim refused to go to the hospital. Police arrested Brubaker and located the knife.
Brubaker has previous burglary convictions stemming from arrests in 1984, 1986, 1995 and 2005, according to court records. He served varied jail and prison terms for those cases.
