DeKalb man pleads guilty to mob action

SYCAMORE — A DeKalb man was sentenced to prison Wednesday on charges of mob action and aggravated battery for his involvement in a fight earlier this year.

During a hearing at the DeKalb County Courthouse, Darris J. Flores, 19, of the 100 block of Gurler Street in DeKalb, pleaded guilty to mob action, aggravated battery, unlawful use of a weapon and resisting a peace officer.

He also pleaded guilty to violating probation for a previous charge of aggravated battery.

Police said Flores was involved in a fight in June in the 800 block of Kimberly Drive. When police attempted to arrest Flores, he resisted. He also was found to be in possession of a throwing star.

Flores was sentenced to concurrent terms in prison, including five years for the new aggravated battery charge, five years for the resentence on the previous aggravated battery charge, three years for the charge of unlawful use of a weapon and three years for the mob action charge.

He receives credit for time served in jail.

Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert approved a recommendation that Flores serve his sentence in the Illinois Department of Corrections’ boot camp program.
