Degutis was found guilty on two counts of causing bodily harm and two counts of making physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature against a minor family member.

On November 9, 2021, officers from the Woodstock Police Department were dispatched for a domestic disturbance call.

On arrival, their investigation determined that Degutis had battered the minor during the prior evening, and he was arrested and charged.

During the trial, jurors heard testimony from the victim, the defendant’s wife, and two of the responding officers.

Video evidence of the battery and photographs of the victim’s injuries were also presented in the State’s evidence.

Degutis’s matters are set for sentencing on June 8, 2023.

He faces up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500 on each count. Sentences can run concurrently.

This case was investigated by members of the Woodstock Police Departments. This case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorneys Julio Cantre and Ashur Y. Youash. This was ASA Cantre’s first jury trial since joining the office on May 1, 2023.

  1. Sometimes spoiled brats deserve a beatdown, particularly when pervert videos are found on the iPhone.

    Did Dad do wrong?


    But pabboy Kenneally did!

  2. I looked up the guy’s record on the Circuit Court web site.

    There’s a pending divorce, which usually makes me somewhat skeptical of abuse claims, but the guy also has multiple priors for exposing himself.

    That hairstyle couldn’t have helped him much with the jury.
