A 21-year-old Hoffman Estates man pleaded guilty to battery in exchange for probation.

Jose Leon-Galvin was sentenced to 24 months' probation Tuesday and ordered to pay $709 in fines in exchange for pleading guilty to aggravated battery in a public place, court records show.


Prosecutors said Leon-Galvin pushed and struck a 15-year-old girl last summer. They said he told police he and the girl had been dating for nine months.
