A judge sentenced a 19-year-old man to 14 years in prison after prosecutors say he fired a shot into an occupied home in Crystal Lake while in possession of a stolen gun.

Joel B. Kattner, 19, of Crystal Lake, was charged in October 2022 with aggravated discharge of a firearm, use of a stolen firearm in the commission of a crime, possession of a stolen firearm, reckless discharge of a firearm and defacing a firearm.

A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said a shooting occurred on July 10, 2022, in the 900 block of Coventry Lane in Crystal Lake.

Kattner was armed with a .380 caliber handgun, which was stolen, the complaint said.

Kattner discharged the gun at a residence on the block while the home was occupied, the complaint said.

Prosecutors said a teenager was present inside the home when the shooting occurred. A bullet went through a bedroom window.

The complaint added that Kattner acted recklessly and endangered the safety of the teenager.

No injuries were reported. Investigators also discovered the stolen gun used in the incident had its serial number defaced.

Prosecutors said the victim identified Kattner as the shooter and investigators conducted a search warrant at the suspect’s home, which is where they located the gun used.

Officers with the Crystal Lake Police Department arrested Kattner in early October 2022 and a judge ordered him held on a $150,000 bond, which he posted and has been on electronic home monitoring since.

Kattner entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office on Monday.

He pleaded guilty to use of a stolen firearm in the commission of a crime and possession of a stolen firearm, which are both Class 2 felonies.

McHenry County Judge Tiffany Davis approved the plea and sentenced Kattner to a combined 14 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections pursuant to the plea.

The two seven-year sentences will be served at 50% in accordance with truth-in-sentencing guidelines.

Kattner will receive over 470 days of credit for time spent on electronic monitoring and in custody.
