A Lake Villa man has been sentenced to periodic imprisonment after pleading guilty in a case where he robbed a man while armed with a gun in Round Lake and attacked the victim.
Keenan R. Queen, 22, of the 22300 block of Morton Drive in Lake Villa, was indicted by a grand jury in April on charges of armed robbery, a Class X felony, aggravated robbery, a Class 1 felony, and two counts of aggravated battery, a Class 2 felony.
A grand jury indictment filed in Lake County Circuit Court said that Queen robbed a man on August 21, 2021, near South Bernice Court and Petite Road in Round Lake.
Queen, who was armed with a firearm, took a phone, cash, and prescription glasses from the 19-year-old man during the robbery, the indictment said.
Queen also struck the victim in the head with an object, causing bodily harm, the indictment said.
The victim was treated by paramedics from the Greater Round Lake Fire Protection District.
Court records show Queen pleaded guilty last month to one count of robbery in exchange for his other charges being dismissed.
A Lake County judge approved the plea deal and sentenced Queen to 36 months of probation and 12 months of periodic imprisonment.
The judge credited Queen with serving 385 days in jail while awaiting his case.
As part of Queen’s probation, he is prohibited from possessing drugs or consuming alcohol and is not allowed to possess any weapons.
In September 2021, Queen was charged with drug-induced homicide for allegedly selling fentanyl-laced pills to a Cary man, causing his death.
That case was recently closed after Queen entered into a blind plea deal and pleaded guilty to an amended count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, a Class 2 felony, in exchange for his drug-induced homicide charge being dismissed.
McHenry County Judge James Cowlin sentenced him last week to 36 months of probation and 100 hours of public service and ordered him to pay $2,790 in court fines and fees.
