Joshua A. Doss, 43, of Huntley.

A Huntley man was sentenced to 23 years in prison after being convicted of a home invasion where he stabbed another man multiple times, seriously injuring him, in Kane County.

Joshua A. Doss, 43, of Huntley, was charged in December 2020 with multiple counts of attempted murder, armed violence, home invasion, aggravated battery and violation of an order of protection.

Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Kelly Orland said in court that Doss entered a home in the 3100 block of Merrywell Court in Carpentersville on December 28, 2020.

An active order of protection prohibited him from being at the home, which was his marital residence.

He and his wife were going through a divorce at the time, Orland said.

Doss, armed with a knife, pushed past his estranged wife and lunged at a male victim, stabbing him in the chest area and forearm.

The victims fled the residence and responding officers found Doss in the master bedroom of the home, Orland said.

The male victim spent five days in the hospital after undergoing surgery for his wounds.

Doss entered into a negotiated plea deal with the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office earlier this month, court records show.

Doss pleaded guilty to home invasion, a Class X felony, in exchange for an agreed prison sentence and the remainder of his charges being dismissed.

Kane County Judge John Barsanti approved the plea and sentenced Doss to 23 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

“Mr. Doss’ actions turned an emotional situation into an unnecessary, violent and bloody one. Given the severity of his injuries, the victim is lucky to be alive,” Orland said.

“My thanks to the Carpentersville Police Department and Det. Fred Hailer for the outstanding investigation, and to victim advocate Linda Hagemann,” Orland added.

Doss must serve 85% of the sentence and he will receive 923 days of credit for time already served in the county jail where he has been held on a $500,000 bond.
