A judge on Tuesday sentenced a 51-year-old man to prison in connection with a 2016 residential burglary in which the man allegedly bit one of the homeowners.
Christopher Keeton, of the 400 block of Barrington Road, Wauconda, was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to residential burglary.
As a condition of the plea deal, prosecutors dismissed additional battery and theft charges.
McHenry County sheriff’s deputies arrested Keeton in March 2016 following a burglary at a McHenry home.
Keeton was accused of entering the home and stealing items including prescription pills, according to a complaint filed at the time.
He also allegedly bit someone who was inside the home during the burglary, records show.
Keeton must serve 50% of the sentence and will receive credit for time he already has spent in the McHenry County Jail.
Judge Robert Wilbrandt made a recommendation that Keeton be sent to a prison where he will have access to drug and alcohol treatment, although where an inmate is placed is a decision that generally is left to the Illinois Department of Corrections.
