Rebecca L. Wise, 38, of Cary.

A Cary woman has been found guilty of entering her mother’s home in Huntley and kicking her mother in the face, breaking her orbital bone, prosecutors said.

Rebecca L. Wise, 38, of Cary, was charged in November 2022 with aggravated domestic battery, two counts of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and aggravated battery to a victim over 60.

Kane County Assistant State’s Attorneys Jacki Kliment and Amanda Busljeta said in court that Wise entered her mother’s home on November 22, 2022.

Wise kicked her mother, who was over 60 years old, in the face and broke her orbital bone, the prosecutors said.

Huntley Deputy Police Chief Linda Hooten said at the time that the victim had her hair pulled and was pushed to the floor during the attack.

Wise kicked her mother numerous times while she was down on the floor, Hooten said.

The Huntley Police Department responded and arrested Wise the day after the attack.

She was transported to the Kane County Jail where she was held until late January when she posted bond.

A jury trial began last week and the jury returned its verdict finding Wise guilty of two counts of aggravated battery, a Class 3 felony, and one count of aggravated domestic battery, a Class 2 felony.

“Relationships within families can be difficult at times. However, a tumultuous relationship with a family member is never an excuse to physically harm someone,” Kliment said.

“The victim showed immense courage in confronting her daughter in court and finally getting the chance to tell her side of the story. My thanks to ASA Busljeta and victim advocate Sheila Gray for their outstanding work on this case,” Kliment said.

Kane County Judge Alice Tracy scheduled Wise’s next court hearing for December 13 to set motions and sentencing.

Wise faces a sentence of three to seven years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. She could also receive probation.

In February 2020, Wise was charged with aggravated battery after police alleged that she dragged her juvenile son by his wrist, causing him to hit his head, and also struck him with an open hand.

She pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of misdemeanor battery and received two years of probation.
