Elgin Man Sentenced for Domestic Violence

 Posted on December 00, 0000 in Domestic Violence

During a verbal argument in 2011, Quinzeric D. Span resorted to violence against his girlfriend.  Elgin authorities claimed that Span not only attacked his girlfriend in an Elgin residence near the 400 block of Chicago Street, but also in a car while being driven around Elgin by a third party.

This attack ended when the woman escaped the vehicle while it was stopped at a stop-light.  She ran away from her attacker at the intersection of North Grove Avenue and Seneca Street.  But she did not escape the beating unscathed.  She suffered a broken orbital bone near her eye and a perforated eardrum.

Span was taken into custody to await trial at the Kane County jail.  While he was jailed, he successfully communicated with his girlfriend over the phone.  Records show that since he was in prison, Span placed over 450 phone calls to the woman, against a court order preventing him from doing so.  Authorities claim that this was an attempt to stop her from testifying against him.

His pleas almost worked.  She had to be brought to court by local police at Span’s October trial.  When he realized she was there, he changed his plea to guilty for the aggravated domestic battery.  The circuit judge Timothy Q. Sheldon sentenced him to 7 years in prison, especially in regards to his past history of aggravated battery in 2010.

Domestic violence is a major problem although it is rarely talked about.  If you are a victim of abuse in your relationship, then you should seek an order of protection from a legal professional.  If it is your spouse, you may want to consider divorce to escape the cycle of abuse.  Contact a compassionate family law attorney in DuPage County today.  Don’t suffer at the hands of your loved one any longer.
