Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato announces that Alfred A. Hoskins (D.O.B. 1/23/1960) was sentenced to 16 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections by the Honorable Judge Rosemary Collins.  The defendant will also be on Mandatory Supervised Release for three years once he is released from prison.

On February 8th, 2017, a Winnebago County Sheriff’s Deputy observed the defendant, Alfred Hoskins, attempt to break in to a business at 10129 N. 2nd Street. The deputy was able to place Hoskins under arrest, after a brief foot chase and struggle. A follow-up investigation linked Hoskins to several other burglaries at businesses in the City of Rockford, Winnebago County and Loves Park areas. 

 

Burglary is a Class 2 Felony that is punishable by a sentence of 3-7 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections followed by two years of Mandatory Supervised Release. However, based on Hoskins’ criminal history he  faced a mandatory Class X sentencing range of 6-30 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections followed by three years of Mandatory Supervised Release.
