WOODSTOCK – A Harvard teen pleaded guilty to felony armed violence for striking another man with a baseball bat.

Jose A. Dominguez, 19, entered a blind plea Wednesday, meaning there was no agreement with the attorneys on a sentence. Additional charges of mob action and battery were dropped.

According to the criminal complaint, on Jan. 26, Dominguez struck the victim in the head with a baseball bat.

His guilty plea was accepted by McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather.

Armed violence is a Class 2 felony, with a maximum sentence of seven years in prison. Dominguez is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 7.
