-A man lost an eye when he was attacked another at a two-year old’s birthday party in Huntley.
Doesn’t that bring to mind the “eye for an eye” admonition in the Old Testament?
I’ve heard commentary that punishment was intended to keep people from killing someone who gouged out an eye. Any Biblical scholars out there who could confirm, dispute or elaborate in the comment section?
BOGUSLAW CZAPLA SENTENCED TO THREE YEARS IN THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS FOR MOB ACTION AND AGGRAVATED BATTERY
Louis A. Bianchi, McHenry County State’s Attorney, announces that 39 year old Boguslaw Czapla, previously of Elmwood Park, was sentenced today to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for the felony offenses of aggravated battery and mob action.
The defendant was found guilty by a jury on November 4, 2010 after a four day trial. The jury deliberated for approximately two hours before finding the defendant guilty of both charges.
The trial testimony revealed that the defendant and the victim were attending a birthday party for a two year old child on July 19, 2008.
Towards the end of the party, the defendant kicked the thirty-two year old victim in the face causing the loss of his right eye.
During the sentencing hearing, the victim who was previously a commercial truck-driver, stated that he has had difficulty providing for his family and maintaining steady employment because of the injury.
This case was investigated by Detective Kevin Keane and other members of the Huntley Police Department. This case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney Ryan Blackney and Criminal Division Chief Philip Hiscock.
