A 31-year-old McHenry man will serve prison time in connection with a 2019 residential burglary.
A McHenry County judge on Wednesday sentenced John A. Neveitt to six years in prison after Neveitt pleaded guilty a felony residential burglary charge. The offense was charged as a Class X felony punishable by six to 30 years in prison, based on Neveitt's criminal history. Most recently, Neveitt was convicted in 2016 of possession with intent to deliver heroin in McHenry County.
As a condition of Wednesday's plea deal, prosecutors agreed to dismiss additional charges including theft and felon in possession of a firearm.
McHenry County sheriff's officers arrested Neveitt following a March 15, 2019 response to the 4700 block of Howard Street, McHenry, according to a news release.
Neveitt was accused of entering a home in the area with intent to commit a theft, according to the release.
He'll be required to serve two years parole upon completion of his prison sentence.
