Man gets probation for Hebron beating and robbery attempt

WOODSTOCK – A Kenosha, Wis., man involved in the 2012 beating of a Hebron man received two years of probation on Monday.

Adolf Brown, 18, pleaded guilty to attempted home invasion in connection with a Nov. 18 incident involving two other men.

McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Robert Zalud said Brown was coerced by another man to break into the home of Junious Norfleet and attack him.

Tywon T. Williams, who Zalud said was the ringleader of the attack, pleaded guilty in March to attempted armed robbery. On Nov. 18, Williams, along with Brown and Omar Spears, tied up Norfleet, put him in a closet, covered his face and began to kick and hit him in the face.

Norfleet, who was on parole after a 24-year sentence for a separate drug case, did not know any of the men, McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney David Metnick said in March.

Zalud said he believed Brown was forced by Williams to commit the crime – possibly at gunpoint – and therefore was deserving of a lesser sentence.

Williams, whose arrest came after he was on parole after a seven-year sentence for a Lake County drug case, was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
