7-Time Convicted Burglar Gets 6 Year Sentence For Lakeview Break-In; Burglaries Up 102% This Year

Henigan
A seven-time convicted burglar has received a six-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to breaking into a Lakeview man’s garage last winter.

But, this is criminal-friendly Illinois, so he's going to be paroled in just over two years. Yes, really.

On January 24, cops responding to a burglar alarm in the 300 block of West Barry found 41-year-old Nolen Henigan with an $800 Rockhopper bike and a coin purse that he took from a nearby garage, prosecutors said.

With credit for time he spent in jail awaiting resolution of his case, Henigan will be paroled on January 18, 2019--less than 3 years after he committed the crime!

State records show that Henigan received a 12-year prison sentence for burglary in 2009, but served fewer than seven years.

He also served less than four years of two 9-year burglary sentences handed down in 2006 and 2002.

He served barely three years of a 6-year burglary sentence issued in 1999 and less than four years for a pair of 7-year burglary sentences issued in 1995.

He served just over three years of a 7-year sentence for possessing a stolen vehicle in 1992; and only two years of a 4-year burglary sentence issued in 1989.

• Up 102% in Wrigleyville and Boystown
• Up 96% in the 44th Ward
• Up 45% in Lake View
• Up 44% in the 19th police district

"Forcible entry" means that the offenders forced their way in, typically by breaking through a door or window. "Unlawful Entry" means that no force was used--a window left unlocked, for example.

  1. Let's remember - these are the numbers for REPORTED crimes. The real numbers are bound to be higher. Likely...a bunch higher.

  2. We are the laughing stock of the country and rather than restore law and order we just catch and release. You don't need a PHD in criminal justice Crook County Democrats. Just keep the criminals in jail for much longer.

  3. What a joke. Why would criminals stop committing crime when most receive little or no punishment. Kim Foxx is going to make this even worse. Please take a look at Chris Pfannkuche before blindly voting for Foxx.

  6. Yes, we will see his beady little eyes on here again. Probably will be nailed February 2019 for something, sentenced to prison until 2024, paroled in 2020; nailed again in 2022, sentenced until 2028, paroled in 2025; nailed yet again in 2026, sentenced to 2036, paroled in 2029, and so on and so on. Multiply this scenario times thousands and thousands of criminals, and you see why Illinois is a shit-storm mockery of "criminal justice." I could vomit just thinking about it.

  7. Seven convictions and his latest gets him a mere 6 year sentence, which equates to about maybe 1 year with parole/early release? What kind of a civilization has such contempt for its citizens that a person can have a mile-long rap sheet and not be incarcerated permanently? Happy Halloween!

  8. Landlords are partly to blame due to flimsy doors and locks, window hardware,etc. Tenants allowing crooks to walk into unlocked or partially secured premises also figures into this."unlawful entry". Then consider limited to non existent Police protection, "raps" ect. Well...you get the picture. Look at an old mansion with real exterior doors and burglar bars over first floor windows. Contrast that with today's hollow core doors and cheap aluminum windows with flimsy lock hardware. Renters accept this crap with predictable results. Give me scissor bars over the doors and bars over the windows.I will take my chances with the old school methods. A vicious dog would also make sense in this environment.

    1. CWB posted the pictures of my flimsy/broken locks years ago along with the sticky note the Courtney left on the door to a Beal Property for the postman which read "The landlord still hasn't fixed the lock so I propped the door open for you".

      Yes, the landlords AND tenants are to blame for thinking they still live in Naperville and Lakeview is a "safe" area in the city. If you think the criminals aren't aware of the ignorance, YOU are the moron.

      I also rented a "condo" in Lakeview East that had the original leaded glass main door on it and a lock circa 1927 as well.

    2. Attention David Weeks what the hell in that post makes the poster a moron?

    3. I concur that the original poster is a moron. He is blaming the victims. We should not have to dig moats around our homes in order to conduct our lives without fear.

  9. Our CPD does a damned good job and they're as frustrated as we are. However, when you haven't any manpower (or woman power, don't wanna be sexist) what can you do?

  10. If the crook is release in two years, society still will have to pay about $90,000 for the incarceration expenses. THAT IS THE REAL CRIME!

  11. Landlords are PARTLY to blame? OH MY. Now we are BLAMING the victim.

  12. I remember this guy. He is always riding his bike and harassing people near Foster and Ashland.

  13. How can it be that someone who is convicted of a crime while out on parole isn't required to finish serving the first sentence with added time for the second?

      Under Daley, the MFers robbing you wouldn't even bother with the law. They were the damn law.
