A 53-year-old West Chicago man faces up to five years in prison after his conviction this week for beating a Hampshire man last year after a car repair dispute.
A Kane County jury convicted Ignacio D. Rodriguez, of the 400 block of East Brown Street, of aggravated battery with great bodily harm, prosecutors said.
Rodriguez will be sentenced April 11 by Judge John Barsanti.
According to prosecutors, Rodriguez went to a Hampshire business at about noon Jan. 31, 2013, to ask the man about a car that Rodriguez had brought in for repairs. The two argued about how long the job took and as the man walked away, Rodriguez punched him three times on the left side of his face.
The victim suffered broken bones in his face and needed surgery; two of the victim's friends and his wife were in a nearby work shed, heard noises from the assault and ran to see the victim on the ground and an uninjured Rodriguez standing nearby, prosecutors said.
Rodriguez is free on $5,000 bond and faces anywhere from probation to five years in prison when sentenced.
