People v. Lewis

OCTOBER 25, 1973.

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, PLAINTIFF-APPELLEE,

v.

MICHAEL LEWIS, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.



APPEAL from the Circuit Court of Will County; the Hon. MICHAEL A. ORENIC, Judge, presiding.

MR. PRESIDING JUSTICE ALLOY DELIVERED THE OPINION OF THE COURT:

Defendant Michael Lewis appeals from a judgment of the Circuit Court of Will County revoking his probation and thereafter sentencing him to a term of two to five years in the Illinois State Penitentiary (on a charge of burglary to which he had previously pleaded guilty).

The record discloses that Michael Lewis was placed on four years probation for burglary in Will County. After his flight to avoid arrest to the state of California, warrants for his arrest were sent to that state, but on September 17, 1971, he was arrested in Will County. A petition was filed to revoke his probation charging him with two counts of burglary. This petition was amended by a subsequent petition on October 22, 1971, charging him with two additional counts of burglary. On November 30, 1971, defendant admitted to the violation of probation specifically admitting the details of charges in two counts of burglary.

MR. LEWIS: Yes, sir.

THE COURT: And the petition says that in Count II you burglarized a garage building of James Policandriote at 308 Railroad Street, City of Joliet, Will County, Illinois. And do you admit that violation?

MR. LEWIS: Yes, sir, I do.

THE COURT: And has your lawyer explained to you that by admitting the violation of the order of probation you make it possible for the Court to revoke probation and sentence you to the Penitentiary on the original charge?

MR. LEWIS: Yes, Your Honor.

THE COURT: You understand that?

MR. LEWIS: Yes, Your Honor.

THE COURT: You still want to admit ...
