A Highland Park man who was one of four offenders who used the lure of prostitution in a Feb. 12 Villa Park home invasion was sentenced to 22 years in prison after pleading guilty Wednesday in DuPage County Criminal Court, according to a story in the Daily Herald.
Jaime Aguirre, 23, of Highland Park was charged along with three other men after they arranged with the victim to send a prostitute to his home, according to an article in the My Suburban Life. When the victim answered his door, Acquire and his codefendants greeted him at gunpoint, bound him and took his credit cards.
“They threatened to cut off his toe if he could not remember his PIN numbers," Assistant DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Stanker said in the Daily Herald. Aguirre and another defendant withdrew approximately $500 from the victim’s bank account while the other two remained to stand guard.
Aguirre also faced charges of aggravated kidnapping and armed robbery which could have added between 21 and 45 years to his sentence, according to My Suburban Life. His codefendants, all of Chicago, remain in jail awaiting trial.
