Cases were still pending against his two codefendants, Deonte Daniel, 21, and Deanthony Webb, 24, both of South Shore.

About 5 a.m. Nov. 27, 2017, Elmhurst police responded to a call for a garage burglary and followed two vehicles that fled the scene, prosectors said. One of the cars crashed into the other before crashing into a home. Four men then attempted to run from the crashed cars, but three of them were arrested shortly after.

Wilson and the other men were held on $250,000 bond each.

“Today’s sentencing sends the message that if you commit this type of brazen crime in DuPage County you will be caught, charged and if found guilty, spend a significant amount of time behind bars,”DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin said.
