A Chicago man has been sentenced to three years in prison for beating and strangling a pregnant woman in Lake in the Hills, court records show.
Nathan A. Sagastume, 27, of the 600 block of West Melrose Avenue in Chicago, was charged in August 2021 with two counts of aggravated domestic battery, four counts of aggravated battery of a pregnant person and two counts of domestic battery.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said Sagastume caused great bodily harm to a woman on August 24, 2021, in Lake in the Hills.
The complaint said the man strangled the woman, who is a family member of his, restricting her oxygen.
Sagastume also struck the woman in the chest with his fist, knowing she was pregnant, and also wrapped his arms around her stomach, the complaint and an indictment said.
Sagastume entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office this week.
He pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated domestic battery, a Class 2 felony, in exchange for prosecutors dismissing his other charges.
McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge approved the plea deal and sentenced Sagastume on Wednesday to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
He will be required to serve the sentence at 85% and will receive six days of credit for time already served in jail.
