Man who attacked estranged wife on street gets jail, probation
A man accused of pulling his estranged wife from her car and attacking her in a St. Charles industrial park earlier this year has pleaded guilty and must serve two years of probation.
Mohammad B. Sultan, 43, of the 1300 block of North Main Street, Wheaton, recently pleaded guilty to one count of felony aggravated domestic battery and violating an order of protection, according to Kane County court records.
In addition to probation, Sultan was sentenced to 150 days in jail, domestic violence counseling, and $1,470 in fines, records show. He had been held at the Kane County jail since mid-June on $100,000 bail while his case was pending. He received credit for time served and was released after the plea, which was accepted by Judge James Hallock.
Other, less severe charges were dismissed in exchange for the guilty plea.
St. Charles police said Sultan attacked his estranged wife about 2:04 a.m. June 20 as she left her job in an industrial park on the 3800 block of Stern Avenue on the city's west side.
Sultan was accused of using his car to block the 46-year-old woman's vehicle as she left, opening her car door and taking her phone as she tried to call for help, before punching and trying to strangle her, police said. A bystander called police and Sultan drove off, but he was arrested shortly after the attack.
If Sultan violates his probation, he could be resentenced to up to seven years in prison.
