La Salle Man Pleads Guilty to Sex Crime Involving Minor

Posted by wlpo on July 29, 2016

A La Salle man will be spending the rest of this decade in prison after pleading guilty to having sex with a minor.

Tony Thornton pled guilty in court Friday to aggravated criminal sex abuse, stemming from his arrest back in April. He was arrested back after a high-school girl told police she had been sexually assaulted by the 30-year old in February.

Judge H. Chris Ryan sentenced Thornton to 3.5 years in prison, as outlined in the plea deal.
