[ARCHIVED] Man Sentenced in Warrenville Aggravated Battery Incident
On Monday, a subject charged with Aggravated Battery for an incident that occurred at the Warrenville Public Library on April 20, 2016, was sentenced in DuPage County court. Judge Guerin sentenced Omar Carlton to three years in prison for rubbing his bare foot against the foot of female library patron. Carlton was also sentenced to second consecutive three-year term for his involvement in four like incidents at North Central College library in Naperville. Carlton’s history of similar incidents dating back to 1989 played a role in his sentencing. NBC News Article
On April 20, 2016, Carlton rubbed his bare foot against the open sandal of a female patron while both were sitting at computer stations within the library. After each occurrence, the female patron moved over slightly, but the offender continued to make foot contact with her. After alerting library staff, the offender fled the scene, but was later identified by Warrenville detectives. A warrant was then issued for Carlton's arrest, and on May 4, 2016, he was taken into custody and transported to the DuPage County jail where he remained through his sentencing. Carlton will receive credit for time served.
