A 25-year-old Bolingbrook man is the second person to admit to his role in a June home invasion.
In a deal with prosecutors, Robert Lee Jackson pleaded guilty Monday to one count of home invasion and was sentenced to six years in prison. He will receive credit for the nearly seven months he has spent in DuPage County Jail.
Prosecutors dropped armed robbery, attempted armed robbery and residential burglary charges as part of the deal accepted by Judge Daniel Guerin.
Jackson must also testify against three codefendants—, Kendyl Gill and Brandon Reynolds—also charged in connection with the at a Fairway Drive apartment.
The men were arrested on charges they broke into a woman's apartment on Fairway Drive, threatened her with a handgun and stole a cell phone. Jackson admitted to illegally entering the residence and injuring the woman, according to court documents.
Guyton was involved in a traffic stop a short time after the break in and reportedly told a police officer that his girlfriend had just been robbed.
Guyton recently pleaded guilty to an attempted armed robbery charge in an agreement with prosecutors that did not include a sentencing recommendation. He is scheduled for a hearing on March 6.
Gill is scheduled for a Tuesday hearing, while Reynolds returns to court on Feb. 8.
