One of four suspects has been sentenced to 160 days in jail after pleading guilty to his role in the beating of a man who was robbed of his clothes, shoes and phone in Crystal Lake.
Shanquan D. Watson, 19, of DeKalb, 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 last Wednesday, court records show.
Watson pleaded guilty to one count of mob action, a Class 4 felony, in exchange for prosecutors dismissing his other charges.
McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge approved the plea and sentenced him to 160 days in the McHenry County Jail and 30 hours of public service.
Jones will receive day-for-day credit and also receive 68 days of credit for time already served, meaning he will be released from custody next week.
Jones will also be on probation for two years and be required to pay $1,224 in court fines and fees.
Devionne Jones, 21, of Chicago; 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.
Jones pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated battery in a public place and was sentenced to felony probation and a 120-day jail sentence.
