A 35-year-old man was sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to pushing a woman against a wall last year.
Angel D. Torres, formerly of Harvard, entered a guilty plea Tuesday to a felony domestic battery charge stemming from an incident Oct. 8.
He had been accused of choking an ex-girlfriend and pushing her against the wall by her throat, according to a criminal complaint filed in McHenry County court.
Torres had a previous domestic battery conviction in McHenry County from 2014 at the time, records show.
The 2017 offense was a violation of Torres’ probation on a separate attempted robbery conviction, according to a news release from the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
McHenry County Judge James Cowlin resentenced Torres to five years in prison for attempted robbery, and ordered him to serve two years in prison for domestic battery.
The sentences will be served together, meaning Torres must complete at least 50 percent of a five-year sentence before he can be released from prison. He then would be required to serve four years of parole, according to the release.
As a condition of the negotiated plea, prosecutors dismissed additional charges against Torres, including a count of aggravated domestic battery and a charge of possession of a controlled substance from a separate 2017 matter.
