State’s Attorney Marilyn Hite Ross

 

Winnebago County State’s Attorney Marilyn Hite Ross announces that a Rockford woman has been indicted by a Grand Jury for Aggravated Domestic Battery and Aggravated Battery to a Child.

 

In September of 2018, Winnebago County Sheriff’s Deputies received a complaint from an individual who had concerns that his 4-year-old daughter was assaulted by the defendant, Tia M. Hunt (D.O.B. 5/19/1982). Detectives observed bruising on the victim’s face and conducted an investigation into the allegations. The investigation was reviewed by the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office. As a result, Huntwas charged and recently indicted by a Winnebago County Grand Jury. The defendant faces a two count Bill of Indictment that includes Aggravated Domestic Battery and Aggravated Battery to a Child charges.

 

Aggravated Domestic Battery is a Class 2 Felony that is punishable by a sentence of 3-7 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections followed by four years of Mandatory Supervised Release.

Aggravated Battery to a Child is a Class 3 Felony that is punishable by a sentence of 2-5 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections followed by a year of Mandatory Supervised Release.

 

            Hunt is scheduled to be back in court at 9:00am on January 16th, 2019 in front of the Honorable Judge Brendan Maher in Courtroom D of the Winnebago County Criminal Justice Center.

 

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