Docket No. 106068.
THE STATE OF ILLINOIS
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, Appellant, v.
RICARDO SIGUENZA-BRITO, Appellee.
Opinion filed November 19, 2009.
JUSTICE FREEMAN delivered the judgment of the court, with
Chief Justice Fitzgerald and Justices Thomas, Kilbride, Garman,
Karmeier, and Burke concurred in the judgment and opinion.
Following a bench trial in the circuit court of Cook County,
defendant, Ricardo Siguenza-Brito, was found guilty of multiple
offenses relating to kidnapping and criminal sexual assault. The court
entered judgment on one count of aggravated kidnapping (720 ILCS
5/10–2(a)(3) (West 2004)) and one count of aggravated criminal
sexual assault (720 ILCS 5/12–14(a)(4) (West 2004)), and sentenced
defendant to two consecutive six-year prison terms. The appellate
court affirmed the aggravated criminal sexual assault conviction,
reduced the aggravated kidnapping conviction to kidnapping, and
remanded the cause to the circuit court for resentencing. No.
1–06–0632 (unpublished order under Supreme Court Rule 23). We
allowed the State’s petition for leave to appeal. 210 Ill. 2d R. 315(a).
We now affirm the judgment of the appellate court in part and reverse
in part, and affirm the judgment of the circuit court, as modified.
