A 25-year-old Chicago man with a long record of burglaries in Cook, Kane and McHenry counties was sentenced to eight years in prison Thursday after admitting to a May 2016 break-in at a Lake in the Hills home.

Tyree J. Marshall was serving a 10-year prison term for a 2016 burglary in Crystal Lake when fingerprints at the Lake in the Hills crime scene tied him to the burglary, authorities said. An arrest warrant was issued in September 2017, two months after he pleaded guilty to the Crystal Lake break-in.


Marshall, who also lived in Carpentersville at one time, faced four to 15 years in prison on a residential burglary charge stemming from the Lake in the Hills case.

The sentence handed down by McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge also includes $2,200 restitution and $648 in court costs, according to court records.

In the guilty plea in the 2016 Crystal Lake burglary, Marshall was sentenced to $10,000 restitution and the matter has been sent to collections, records show.

Before Thursday's guilty plea, Marshall was eligible for parole in September 2023, but will now have to serve the new sentence after he completes the 10-year term.

According to court records, he has numerous burglary convictions from Cook County; one each in 2011, 2012 and 2018 and three in 2017.

He also has convictions in Kane County for felony theft in 2012, trespassing in 2016 and aggravated battery to a peace officer in 2017, records show.
