A Wonder Lake man has been sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to battering a police officer during an attempted arrest in McHenry County.
Robert L. Chissus, 52, of Wonder Lake, was charged in November 2019 with aggravated battery of a peace officer, a Class 2 felony, and resisting a peace officer, a Class A misdemeanor.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said Chissus caused bodily harm to a McHenry County sheriff’s deputy on November 12, 2019.
Chissus grabbed and squeezed the fingers of the deputy and shoved him backward, the complaint said.
The man also resisted arrest by pulling both of his hands in front of his body to avoid being handcuffed, the complaint said.
Chissus pleaded guilty to aggravated battery of a peace officer, a Class 2 felony, on Friday.
Prosecutors dismissed his resisting arrest charge as a result of the plea deal, court records show.
McHenry County Judge James Cowlin sentenced Chissus to four years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
The sentence will be served at 50% and Chissus will receive credit for time served awaiting his case, which was 177 days.
Chissus remains held in the McHenry County Jail awaiting transport to a state prison.
