A convicted felon from Richmond was sentenced to six years in prison after being charged in multiple cases, including one where he attacked a Walmart employee and another where he was found with a switchblade knife.
David A. Stoneburner, 36, of the 10500 block of North Main Street in Richmond, pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, a Class 2 felony, and aggravated battery, a Class 3 felony.
McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge sentenced Stoneburner to six years in prison for unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon and two years for aggravated battery.
The sentences will be served concurrently so Stoneburner will only serve six years total in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Stoneburner, a convicted felon, was apprehended by members of the Crystal Lake Police Department during a routine traffic stop when they discovered a switchblade knife in the man’s possession.
A police investigation also revealed that Stoneburner was responsible for an aggravated battery that occurred outside the Walmart, located at 3801 Running Brook Farm Boulevard in Johnsburg, in January 2019.
In November 2019, Stoneburner was arrested after driving on a suspended license and obstructing identification in Richmond, court records show.
Stoneburner was charged in a separate case this September after he stole over $300 of merchandise from a Woodstock Walmart. The charges were dismissed in that case but he was ordered this month to pay restitution for the items.
Stoneburner was again charged in September in a different case where he threw a blunt object at a window, causing it to shatter, in the 4400 block of East Wonder Lake Drive in Wonder Lake. Damage was estimated at over $300 but prosecutors dropped the charges against him in that case.
The various cases were investigated by members of the Crystal Lake Police Department, Richmond Police Department, McHenry County Sheriff’s Office and Johnsburg Police Department. They were prosecuted by Tyler Mikan of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
