Crystal Lake man could get 10-year sentence in stabbing case
WOODSTOCK – A Crystal Lake man accused of stabbing another man in the neck with a broken pint glass at a bar faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty Friday to aggravated battery.
Austin R. Hobday, 32, also is eligible for probation at his sentencing May 24. He entered a blind plea in front of Judge Sharon Prather, meaning that there is no agreement with prosecutors as to his sentence.
Although he pleaded guilty to a Class 3 felony that is typically punishable by between two and five years in prison, Hobday is eligible for an extended term because his actions were considered "brutal or heinous behavior."
