Aurora man sentenced to six years for fondling woman’s feet
DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin announced today that an Aurora man has been sentenced to six years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for touching a woman’s feet while at the Warrenville Public Library and on another occasion at the North Central College Library. Omar Carlton, 45 of 1040 5th Avenue, appeared in court this afternoon in front of Judge Daniel Guerin who imposed the sentence.
On April 20, 2016, a woman was working in a desk cubicle at the Warrenville Public Library. While working, the woman felt something brush up against her feet several times. The woman immediately told the library staff what happened to her. Library staff contacted the Warrenville Police Department whom, after conducting a thorough investigation into the matter, identified Carlton as a suspect. On April 27, 2016, a $100,000 arrest warrant was issued for Carlton. On May 4, 2016, Carlton was apprehended by the Warrenville Police Department. At that time Carlton was out on bond facing similar charges in relation to an event that took place at the North Central College library. He has remained in custody at the DuPage County Jail since that time. On October 28, 2016, Omar entered a blind plea of guilty to two counts of Aggravated Battery in a Public Place, a Class 3 Felony.
Carlton was sentenced to three years for each count. The sentences will be served consecutively. He will be required to serve 50% of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
