A Wisconsin man, formerly of Huntley, who was convicted of sending a sexually explicit image to a minor was sentenced Friday to one year in prison after prosecutors say he violated probation.
Joshua Rojas, 21, of Howard, originally pleaded guilty on Aug. 2, 2019, to distributing explicit material to a minor. In exchange for his plea at the time, he was sentenced to two years of probation.
Conditions of the sentence required that Rojas abstain from the use of drugs and alcohol. He also was barred from having any unsupervised contact with children or controlling active social media accounts, court records show.
Prosecutors with the McHenry County State's Attorney's Office filed a petition to revoke Rojas' probation in September, after he allegedly admitted to smoking marijuana being active on multiple social media platforms, including Facebook and Snapchat, court records show.
Rojas also was accused of having unsupervised contact with two 13-year-olds and using Snapchat to send sexual text messages to a 13-year-old girl in July, court records show.
On Friday, McHenry County Judge Robert Wilbrandt re-sentenced Rojas to the Illinois Department of Corrections. Rojas will receive credit for any time he has already served at the McHenry County Jail, records show.
