Assistant State's Attorney Steve Knight said Jimenez, along with two other known gang members, sold an assault rifle to an informant who was working with police on Oct. 10, 2012, in an Elmhurst parking lot.

Judge Kathryn Creswell said Jimenez faced two to 10 years in prison on the charge.

Jesse Kamide, 26, of Bensenville also is charged with unlawful sale of firearms and unlawful contact with street gang members. He is next due in court on July 1.

Jimenez, as part of his deal, is expected to testify against Kamide, should his case make it to trial.
