A 24-year-old man was sentenced to five years in prison for stealing $7,500 worth of property from a home that he was temporarily staying at in Woodstock.
Trevor A. Hasselmann, 24, of the 2100 block of Tobyne Drive in Belvidere, was charged with theft between $500 and $10,000, a Class 3 felony.
Hasselmann pleaded guilty to the charge following a negotiated plea agreement.
McHenry County Judge James Cowlin sentenced Hasselmann to five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections on November 13.
Prosecutors said that Hasselmann was temporarily staying at a residence in Woodstock on September 21, 2018, when he stole property from the homeowners.
The items included numerous household goods, electronics, jewelry, musical instruments, tools, gaming systems, games and DVDs. The property was valued at approximately $7,500.
Under truth-in-sentencing guidelines, Hasselmann will serve 50% of the sentence he received.

The investigation was conducted by the Woodstock Police Department and prosecuted by Taylor Nesbit of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
