MAPLE PARK—A Maple Park man was sent to prison for his role in several thefts in 2010 in a rural Kane County town.
Denis P. Walsh, 24, of the 44W block of Peterson Road, Maple Park, on Sept. 22 agreed with the Kane County State’s Attorney to a sentence of three years in the Illinois Department of
Corrections in exchange for a guilty plea to one count of unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle, a Class 2 felony.
Associate Judge Patricia P. Golden accepted the plea.
On or around the early morning of April 30, 2010, Walsh entered a garage in the 2S block of Harter Road, Kaneville, and took a 2005 Honda 50cc motorcycle. Around the same time, Walsh was involved in the theft of property from approximately a dozen neighboring residences.
As part of the plea agreement, Walsh agreed to pay a total of $2,907 in restitution to two victims.
According to Illinois law, Walsh is eligible for day-for-day sentencing. Walsh was given credit for at least 23 days served in the Kane County jail.
Walsh had been free on $7,500 bond. Bond was revoked upon conviction.
The case was prosecuted by Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Brian Erwin.
