Two men have pleaded guilty to their roles in a January 2016 home invasion and robbery of a Carpentersville home and have been sent to prison.

Christen Deleslin, 22, of St. Charles, was sentenced to 13 years after pleading guilty to felony home invasion with a deadly weapon, according to Kane County court records.

O'Shay L. Montgomery, 21, of Elgin, was sentenced to 10 years after pleading guilty to a reduced charge of felony attempted home invasion, records show.

Judge John Barsanti accepted the guilty pleas. In exchange for the guilty pleas, prosecutors dismissed other charges against each man.

Deleslin faced up to 30 years in prison for home invasion, as did Montgomery. The attempted home invasion charge carried a punishment range of four to 15 years in prison.

According to authorities, the charges stemmed from a robbery at about 12:30 p.m. Jan. 1 when a resident of the 0-99 block of Robin Road answered a knock at his back door. Police said Montgomery, Deleslin and a third man entered the home and demanded at gunpoint to know "where the drugs were" from a 27-year-old victim.

The man and another woman at the home didn't have any drugs, so the trio stole an iPad, three iPhones, a PlayStation3, three televisions, a laptop and $100 before driving off, according to police.

Montgomery was arrested in February 2016 on a weapons charge from an unrelated case and one of the victims recognized him from the Elgin police Facebook post announcing the arrest.

Deleslin was later identified by the victims through a photo lineup; the two victims did not know their attackers and were not dealing drugs. The third suspect has not been caught.
