SYCAMORE – A DeKalb man pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated battery against a child in connection with a January incident in which he allegedly twisted his child’s arm hard enough to cause a spiral fracture.

Jason Kidd, 18, of the 1400 block of Lewis Street in DeKalb, had faced a more serious count of aggravated battery against a child that is punishable by up to 30 years in prison. That charge was dropped in the plea agreement.

Kidd was sentenced to 150 days in the DeKalb County Jail, and was given credit for 127 days served.

He was fined $635 but received the same amount as credit for the time he served in jail. 

He was also sentenced to more than two years of probation. During his probation, he is not allowed to drink alcohol and must receive evaluations from his probation officer and Department of Children and Family Services. He must also comply with all provisions of the Violent Offender Against Youth Registration Act.
