Christopher Lundsten, 47, of Woodstock

A Woodstock man is facing felony criminal charges for leaving a family member on the floor of his home for two days, depriving him of help, medication, and food.

Christopher Lundsten, 47, of Woodstock, is officially charged with two class three felony counts of criminal abuse of an elderly person by a caregiver and a misdemeanor count of reckless conduct causing bodily harm, McHenry County court records show.

If found guilty of the most serious crime, Lundsten could be sentenced up to seven years in prison.

The charges are also probationable.

Court records show Lundsten was the caregiver of a family member, but did not render aid or assistance to the family member for two days after the caregiver fell Sunday.

Lundsten left the man there, didn’t help him up, provide him food or medication, or contact emergency services for help, court records show.

Lundsten is due back in court on July 10.
