A Wauconda man must spend weekends in jail for five months after an out-of-county charge prompted prosecutors to revoke his sentence on a sexual abuse conviction.
McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather ordered Blake Alberts to spend 22 weekends in the McHenry County Jail after picking up domestic battery charges in Lake County while he was on probation for aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
Prosecutors asked to revoke 25-year-old Blake R. Alberts’ sentence after learning he was charged in connection with a fight July 4 in Lake County, according to a petition filed in McHenry County court.
The Lake County charges have since been dismissed, public records show.
Alberts will begin serving the jail sentence Jan. 25.
In June, Prather ordered Alberts to serve two years of probation for the 2017 sexual abuse of a woman he allegedly met at Club 220 North in Lake in the Hills.
The woman reported that another man, Eric J. Elwell, held her down while Alberts assaulted her.
The men eventually took off with about $500 worth of jewelry from her home, according to criminal complaints filed at the time.
Alberts and Elwell each accepted plea deals in connection with the woman’s allegations. As a result, Alberts is required to register as a sex offender for life.
Elwell is serving a four-year prison sentence at Shawnee Correctional Center for theft.
