July 24, 2019

WHEATON, Ill. (AP) — A suburban Chicago man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to the 2016 sexual assault of a former girlfriend.

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin’s office says in a news release that 31-year-old Henry Morales of Glendale Heights was sentenced on Monday after pleading guilty to one felony count of aggravated criminal sexual assault.

Berlin’s office says Morales, armed with a large knife, broke into the unincorporated West Chicago apartment of his former girlfriend shortly before 2 a.m. on March 22, 2016, and then sexually assaulted her at knifepoint. He was arrested later that day.

Berlin’s office says that Morales must serve 85% of the 30-year sentence and then register as a sex offender for life.
