A 59-year-old Woodstock man was sentenced to prison Friday in connection with a March 2019 battery that sent a woman to the hospital.
Dennis Haradon, of Woodstock, accepted an offer from the McHenry County State's Attorney's Office Friday and pleaded guilty to a felony count of aggravated domestic battery. McHenry County Judge Robert Wilbrandt sentenced Haradon to seven years in prison. Under Illinois Truth in Sentencing guidelines, Haradon is required to serve at least 85% of the prison term.
In exchange for Haradon's guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to dismiss more serious charges of domestic battery and aggravated battery, records show.
The charges stemmed from a March 3, 2019, call for police to respond to Haradon's home for reported domestic violence. When Woodstock police officers arrived, they learned that Haradon and a woman whom he was dating were arguing when he attacked the woman, according to a news release from the McHenry County State's Attorney's Office.
The woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries to her head and face, according to the release.
