An Algonquin man, who has four prior convictions for domestic battery, was sentenced to three years in prison for battering his sister by shutting the door on her arm.
Rodney W. Carroll, 34, of the 1400 block of Millbrook Drive in Algonquin, was indicted by a grand jury on October 15 on two counts of domestic battery, a Class 2 felony.
The McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office said Carroll committed a battery against his sister on September 12.
During the incident, he forcefully shut the door on the woman’s arm. He was living with his sister at the time, prosecutors said.
A bench trial took place on December 22 and Carroll was found guilty. This is Carroll’s fifth conviction for domestic battery.
He was previously convicted in Kane County in May 2007, July 2017, and February 2018, and in Winnebago County in August 2011.
Judge Robert Wilbrandt sentenced Carroll to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections on Wednesday, court records show.
Carroll, who remains held at the McHenry County jail awaiting transport to a state prison, will also have to pay $749 in court fines and fees.
The case was investigated by the Algonquin Police Department and prosecuted by Brian Miller of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
