Northlake Man Gets 18 Years In Prison For Home Invasion

WHEATON (CBS) — A west suburban man who pleaded guilty to breaking into a home and tying up the inhabitants in 2010 was sentenced to 18 years in prison on Wednesday.

Judge George Bakalis sentenced Jesus Hernandez, 36, of Northlake, to 18 years for breaking into a Lombard home in the fall of 2010. On Jan. 4, Hernandez pleaded guilty to one count of home invasion, according to a release from the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s office.

About 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 30, 2010, Hernandez, wearing a ski mask and armed with a BB gun, broke into the home of Anthony Gilio. who was home with his teenage daughter at the time.

Hernandez handcuffed Gilio’s hands behind his back and ordered him to lie on the floor, then duct-taped the girls hands, the release said.

As Hernandez searched the house, Gilio’s daughter was able to free herself and call 911. When he realized polices had been alerted, Hernandez fled, but was arrested later that day by Lombard police.

Hernandez must serve at least 50 percent of the sentence before he is eligible for parole. He was given credit for time served in the DuPage County Jail.

“Everyone has the right to feel safe in their own home,” State’s Atty. Robert Berlin said the release. “Mr. Hernandez violated the sanctity of his victim’s home and for that he will spend a significant amount of time behind bars.”

    You know like I always say we don’t discriminate around here if he wants to act like one on the south side then lock him up like one

    • Lyndia

      Your remark show how dumb you are. There are plenty of white people on the southside sfupid. Are you talking about them too? You probably are because you are just that crazy.

      • Afro

        I’m talking about anyone who acts like a ni gg er Lyndia fry them all in an electric chair and you and that worthless NWApe to

      Wet backs are no exception

    Nine years (which it probably will be) is not enough time. These b*tches get off too easy. That’s one of the reasons crime is so bad in our state.

      @Tim thats for dam sure

        100% correct you are OLD VET

        Illinois is a safe haven for criminals 49 other states chase them out, and they take refuge here because the citizens aren’t allowed to defend themselves, our Governor abolishes the death penalty and Lyndia provides them with free lip service.

    Since CBS took down comments for that little autistic POS that was kilt by 5-0, this will have to suffice. Again, we are glad he’s out of the picture. The cops had been there 10 times last year? Why does the family keep calling the police? No chance for rehabilitation, so adios.

    • Afro

      Thats right Just Axin, If they weren’t afraid of the boy then why call the people with guns. They got there and had to put him down, now they won’t need to be afraid any longer. I know he had an illness, I mean a dog with rabies has to be put down too. illness? they are all mentally ill anyways or they wouldn’t act the way they do. They walk up to one another and shoot each other in the head, I would have to say theres something mentally not right there also.

    • Lyndia

      Hey dummy, the kid had special needs and they had been to the house before and USED A STUN GUN. THEY HAD TRAINING ON HOW TO DEAL WITH AUSTISM. The family is going to sue AND WIN. The boy was only 15. I would hope that something like that happens to you and your child, if you have any, then your crummy azz would know how it feels.

      • Afro

        They dealt with the autism didn’t they Lindia hats off to the insructor his training saved us money and lives.

  • Just Axin

    Also, autism doesn’t make you do what he did. It doesn’t make you grab a knife and threaten people. It’s the crazy brother genes in him that was a contributing factor.

    • Afro

      Amen Just Axin By Lyndia’s own declaration. These officers were trained with our tax dollars on how to deal with this situation. Now they dealt with it and she isn’t happy.
