A 62-year-old woman has been sentenced to probation after she pleaded guilty to stabbing a man with a large knife in Fox River Grove, requiring him to undergo surgery.
Cynthia M. Done, 62, of Fox River Grove, was charged in June with aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
The Fox River Grove Fire Protection District and Fox River Grove Police Department responded around 8:10 p.m. on June 29 to the 700 block of Northwest Highway in Fox River Grove for a report of a stabbing.
Paramedics arrived and found a male victim who had been stabbed. They transported him to a local hospital for treatment.
Officers arrested Done after identifying her as the suspect, court records show.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said Done caused great bodily harm to the victim.
Done stabbed the victim in his right thigh with a 12-inch knife, the complaint said.
The victim suffered a laceration that resulted in immediate medical attention and surgery, the complaint said.
McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge ordered Done held on a $30,000 bond following her arrest.
After the SAFE-T Act went into effect in September, Done’s attorney filed a motion for release from the McHenry County Jail on pre-trial conditions. Prosecutors then filed a petition to detain Done.
A judge granted the motion and released Done from custody.
Prosecutors said early last month that Done tested positive in October for alcohol in violation of her pre-trial release conditions and also failed to appear for drug screens in November and December.
Prosecutors said late last month that Done again violated her pre-trial release conditions by having contact with the victim in the case and by being intoxicated during an incident where police responded to her apartment.
Court records show Done entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office last week.
She pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, a Class 3 felony.
McHenry County Judge Mark Gerhardt approved the plea and sentenced Done to two years of probation pursuant to the agreement.
Done will be required to undergo random drug screens and have no contact with the victim during her probation.
