Aguilar pleaded guilty to felony possession of a controlled substance, in this case Dimethyltryptamine, a hallucinogenic drug also known as DMT.
The felony was punishable by anywhere from probation to five years in prison.
Judge Karen Simpson accepted the plea.
Aguilar and two others were charged after two men forced their way Oct. 2, 2012, into a second-floor apartment on the 100 block of South River Road (Route 25).
Aguilar and Stephen F. Kolar sustained minor gunshot wounds and the attackers have not been caught.
Kane County Assistant State's Attorney Bill Engerman said police who responded to the scene saw "a large amount of drug paraphernalia in the living room in plain sight."
Authorities obtained a search warrant, seizing: 10 cellphones, two bongs, 13 glass pipes, a shotgun, two rifles, more than 100 rounds of ammunition, 5.5 ounces of marijuana, and foil packets containing drug residue, according to court records.
Baldemar has served 44 days so far and has 36 more to go because he can have his jail sentence halved for good behavior.
Kolar, 23, of the 1000 block of Farnsworth Road, Aurora, also faces up to five years in prison on drug charges. He is fighting to have the search warrant quashed, which would mean any drugs seized and other evidence obtained would not be allowed in court.
Kolar is next due in court May 28 where his defense attorney will argue his case.
Deanna Hernandez, 22, of the 700 block of Benton Street, Aurora, was accepted into the county's Pretrial Diversion Program last December.
