Knowing the McHenry DA, they will all walk with 30 days jail and probation for 18 months. Seems to be the typical back room deal they make for violent offensers, even with repeat offenderts. McHenry is about as soft on crime as you can get....unless you are a senior citizen who was found jaywalking...then they hammer you.

Good people? A mistake is something done that you learn from. Repeat offenders are not 'mistakenly' robbing homes and beating the people inside.....to steal an illegal substance. Robbing and stealing and beating people are NOT mistakes.

I went to school with Phil, he was a punk back then and I guess nothing has changed. I remember back in middle school at Hannah, when Ben stood up to him and rubbed a slice of pizza on his head and face. Phil just sat there and held back tears. When I saw his name in the paper, that memory is how I remember that guy lol

Slick Rick, Punk & pussie. Parents bailed him out AGAIN! $8000 Of course, if you look on Mchenry Govenrment website he & 1 other kid get their charges reduced by making a deal & INF (informing) on other. They can give it but can't take it. They can give others beatings, but boy when it comes to them facing similar in the prison, where they should be, they can't take it so...let's make a deal. Like others said, McHenry County would release these scum back into society with only a slap on the wrist. What F***ing justice.
