A Woodstock man has been sentenced to three years in prison for attacking his ex-wife for the third time in McHenry County, court records show.
Daniel G. Paris, 55, of the 800 block of Carol Avenue in Woodstock, pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of domestic battery as a Class 4 felony.
Paris entered the guilty pleas as part of a deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
In exchange, several other domestic battery counts against him were dismissed.
The guilty plea was the result of two separate cases against Paris, court records show.
Paris allegedly struck his ex-wife in the face and body with his fist on July 14, 2019, in McHenry, according to a grand jury indictment.
Less than a year later, Paris was accused of grabbing and striking the woman on May 19, 2020, in Woodstock, according to a separate grand jury indictment.
During that incident, Paris allegedly prevented or attempted to prevent the victim from calling 911.
Paris had previously been convicted in March 2016 of aggravated domestic battery, a Class 2 felony.
He was sentenced to 180 days in jail for stomping on the woman’s arm, causing a fracture, and punching her in the face and body during a May 2015 attack.
McHenry County Judge Robert Wilbrandt on Wednesday approved the recent plea deal that Paris entered into.
Wilbrandt sentenced Paris to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Paris will receive credit for several months of time served in the McHenry County Jail.
He will also be required to pay over $1,900 in court fines and fees.
