Woman sentenced to 4 years for burglary of DeKalb home

SYCAMORE – A Chicago woman was sentenced to four years in prison Monday for an arranged sexual encounter that turned into a burglary.

Abigail Flores, 24, of the 300 block of North Central Avenue in Chicago, pleaded guilty Monday to a March 2012 residential burglary in exchange for prosecutors dropping charges of prostitution and home invasion. Flores received credit for 177 days, or about six months, of time served toward her four-year prison sentence.

If convicted of the most serious charge she originally faced, Flores would have faced between six and 30 years in prison; probation would not have been an option.

Flores was charged with residential burglary after a March 14 incident in which police said she had arranged to have sex with a DeKalb resident at his Yorkshire Drive home in exchange for money.

But when Flores arrived at the home, she declined to have sex and let others into the home, authorities said. Flores and those with her then punched the man in the face and used tape to restrain him before taking his wallet, keys and phone, authorities said.

Two others have pleaded guilty to residential burglary in connection with the same incident. Tyreese Cox, 20, of the 900 block of North Avenue in Aurora, was sentenced to four years in prison in December. Police said Fredrick Brooks, 21, of the 4500 block of North Magnolia Avenue in Chicago, helped plan the attack. He was sentenced to eight years in prison.
