A Johnsburg man has been sentenced to over three years in prison after he was convicted of his fifth domestic battery charge in McHenry County, court records show.
Noah Maccallum, 47, of Johnsburg, was charged in April with two counts of enhanced domestic battery, a Class 2 felony.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said Maccallum pushed a woman off a chair onto the floor on April 8 in Johnsburg.
He then nudged her with his foot and told her to stop crying, the complaint said.
The Johnsburg Police Department responded and arrested Maccallum. He was held in the McHenry County Jail on a $45,000 bond.
Maccallum had four prior convictions in McHenry County for domestic battery at the time of his arrest, according to a grand jury indictment.
The prior domestic battery offenses occurred in 2015, 2016, 2019 and 2021.
A jury trial was held in September and the jury found Maccallum guilty on both counts. The trial lasted two days.
A sentencing hearing took place last week in front of McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge.
Coppedge sentenced Maccallum to three and a half years in the Illinois Department of Corrections on each count of domestic battery.
The sentences will run concurrently, meaning Maccallum will serve a total of three and a half years.
The sentence will be served at 85% in accordance with truth-in-sentencing guidelines.
Coppedge found that Maccallum committed his latest offense as a result of abuse or addiction to drugs or alcohol.
He recommended Maccallum be placed into a substance abuse program.
