Chrisitian M. Corson, 25, of Cortland.

A 25-year-old man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for committing two burglaries in Algonquin and Lake in the Hills and illegally possessing multiple guns, including a rifle.

Chrisitian M. Corson, 25, of Cortland, was charged in September with multiple counts of armed violence, residential burglary, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, criminal damage to property and possession of a stolen firearm.

A motion filed in court by McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Hunter Jones said Corson was found in the act of burglarizing an unoccupied home in the 100 block of Wildwood in Algonquin on September 20.

Law enforcement discovered Corson committing the burglary, the motion said.

Officers made contact with Corson and found him in possession of proceeds from a separate burglary that occurred at a residence in Lake in the Hills.

Officers found Corson in possession of a 9mm Taurus handgun, Jones said.

A criminal complaint said Corson was also found in possession of an AR-15-style rifle but prosecutors said Corson only had one firearm with him at the time of his arrest.

Jones said Corson told investigators that he had sold another firearm, which was stolen from the Lake in the Hills burglary, to someone in Chicago.

Corson was found with baggies of cocaine that weighed 32 grams in total along with packaging materials, a scale, hydrocodone pills and several hundred dollars.

The Lake in the Hills burglary occurred in the 3000 block of Geneva Lane on September 17, just three days prior to the Algonquin burglary.

Corson, who has a prior conviction for burglary in Kane County, has been held in the McHenry County Jail on a $500,000 bond since his arrest.

Court records show Corson entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office on Friday.

He pleaded guilty to one count of residential burglary, a Class 1 felony, in exchange for his other charges being dismissed.

McHenry County Judge James Cowlin approved the plea deal and sentenced Corson to 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Corson will receive credit for 284 days of time served awaiting trial and will be required to serve the sentence at 50% in accordance with truth-in-sentencing guidelines.
