Ubaldo J. Macias-Cruz, 30, of Mundelein.

A man who injured a McHenry County sheriff’s deputy and also threatened to kill the deputy’s children, saying he knew where the officer lived, has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Ubaldo J. Macias-Cruz, 30, of Mundelein, was charged in December 2021 with aggravated battery of a peace officer, a Class 2 felony, and threatening a public official, a Class 3 felony.

A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said Macias-Cruz battered a McHenry County sheriff’s deputy in early December 2021.

Macias-Cruz rolled onto the deputy’s leg while resisting arrest, causing injury to the deputy’s groin, the complaint said.

Macias-Cruz also threatened the sheriff’s deputy by telling him, “Don’t worry I’ll kill your kid too, and your daughter,” the complaint said.

The complaint said Macias-Cruz also told the deputy that “I know where you live.”

Macias-Cruz, who was a Harvard resident at the time, was taken into custody and has been held in the McHenry County Jail since his arrest.

Court records show Macias-Cruz was also being held on charges of domestic battery for punching a woman in the face and strangling her in Harvard.

Macias-Cruz pleaded guilty late last month to domestic battery, a Class A misdemeanor, and threatening a public official, a Class 3 felony.

His additional charges were dismissed as part of the plea.

McHenry County Judge Tiffany Davis approved the plea agreement and sentenced Macias-Cruz to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

The sentence will be served at 50% and he will receive credit for 573 days in jail awaiting trial.

In May 2021, Macias-Cruz was sentenced to three years in prison for violently beating his wife, striking a female emergency room technician in the face and resisting arrest from police in 2019.
