Success - Article sent! close

A 20-year-old Hanover Park man has pleaded guilty to aggravated battery, court records show.

In exchange for Joshua Little's guilty plea to the class 3 felony, Cook County prosecutors dismissed the kidnapping and sexual assault charges pending against him, court records show.

A Cook County judge sentenced Little to four years in prison and ordered him to pay $649 in fines, records show. Court records also indicate the judge entered an order of protection against Little.

In June, 2013, Hoffman Estates police received a report of a missing person. Their investigation led them to Little, who was found with the then-19-year-old victim in a parking garage near the Kennedy Expressway and Cumberland Avenue in Chicago.

Little received credit for 18 days in custody. He must complete at least 50 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
