One of four suspects has been sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to his role in the beating of a man who was robbed of his clothes, shoes and phone in Crystal Lake.
Devionne Jones, 21, of Chicago, was charged with robbery, two counts of aggravated battery, mob action and theft.
He entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office on Thursday.
Jones pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated battery in a public place, a Class 3 felony, in exchange for prosecutors dismissing his other charges.
McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge approved the plea and sentenced him to two years of felony probation.
A 120-day jail sentence was given but considered served due to Jones having already served 120 days in jail awaiting his case.
Jones will also have to pay $1,299 in court fines and fees.
Shanquan D. Watson, 19, of DeKalb, Davontae D. Harvey, 21, of Palatine, and Cody T. Hooks, 23, of Carpentersville, were also charged with robbery, two counts of aggravated battery, mob action and theft.
Watson, Jones, Harvey and Hooks, along with a fifth subject, allegedly beat a man at the Mobil gas station, 451 West Virginia Street in Crystal Lake, on July 15, 2021.
The suspects struck and kicked the victim, injuring him, according to a criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court.
The group also robbed him of his shorts, cellphone and shoes, the complaint said.
The fifth suspect was named in court documents but it remains unclear if he has been charged.
Hooks has since pleaded guilty to mob action and was sentenced to felony probation with credit for time served in jail.
Harvey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery and was sentenced to conditional discharge and public service.
Watson’s case remains ongoing and he pleaded not guilty during an arraignment hearing earlier this month.
Jones remains held in the McHenry County Jail due to a warrant in another jurisdiction, records show.
