On September 23rd, 2018, just before 8:00pm, Winnebago County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to 4801 Linden Road after reports of shots being fired. When deputies arrived, they were flagged down by a female, who directed them to an area in the parking lot where they found a male victim who appeared to have been shot. The victim was later identified as Anton Harris of Carol Stream, Illinois. Harris was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, and despite all lifesaving efforts, he was pronounced deceased. A subsequent autopsy revealed that Harris died as a result of a gunshot wound. Detectives conducted an investigation which was reviewed by the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office. As a result two men,Sanchez A. Curry (D.O.B. 6/21/1992) of Machesney Park andDevontae T. Wrancher (D.O.B. 3/11/1993) of Rockford were charged then indicted by a Winnebago County Grand Jury. The defendants each face a 23 count bill of indictment that includes First Degree Murder, Mob Action and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon by a Felon Charges.

 

First Degree Murder is a Class M Felony that is punishable by a sentence of 20-60 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections followed by three years of Mandatory Supervised Release. The defendants face the possibility of having an extended term sentence.

Mob Action is a Class 4 Felony that is punishable by an extended sentence of 1-6 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections followed by a year of Mandatory Supervised Release.

Unlawful Possession of a Weapon by a Felon is a Class 2 Felony that is punishable by a special sentence of 3-14 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections followed by two years of Mandatory Supervised Release.

The charges are merely allegations and the defendants are presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty in a court of law.
