Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato announces that Colin C. Livers (D.O.B. 1/27/1982) was found guilty of Aggravated Battery after a bench trial in front of the Honorable Judge Fernando Engelsma.
On January 20th, 2016, Rockford Police were called to the Walmart at 3849 Northridge Drive to investigate an incident. Officers spoke to the victim, who was a minor and under the age of 18 at the time. An investigation revealed that the defendant, Colin Livers, followed the victim throughout the store and as she was about to leave, he grabbed her around the waist. Livers left the store, and police used his license plate number to identify and later arrest him. The victim did not know the defendant. Livers was employed as a teacher’s aid at Harlem High School at the time of this incident.
Aggravated Battery is a Class 3 Felony that is punishable by probation or a sentence of 2-5 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections followed by a year of Mandatory Supervised Release.
Livers is scheduled to be sentenced by the Honorable Judge Fernando Engelsma on July 6th at 1:30pm in Courtroom A of the Winnebago County Criminal Justice Center.
