EVANSTON — On July 17, Greg E. Krieger of Evanston entered a change of plea in Third District Court. Krieger was originally charged with two counts of burglary and two counts of larceny, after it was alleged he broke into C and W Pawn in Evanston Jan. 7.
In a plea agreement, count two of the charges was dismissed. Krieger testified in court he threw a brick of ice to break a window to gain entry to the establishment.
A presentence report was with the court and a 301 status was sought in the case, meaning a withheld judgment to avoid a felony conviction.
Krieger was sentenced to pay $437 restitution, $150 to the Crime Victim’s Fund, $10 in indigent services fees, $10 in court automation fees, $150 in public defender fees, and $75 for an updated substance abuse evaluation. He must also attend the “Thinking for a Change” class, complete three years of supervised probation and a level 2.1 treatment program and aftercare.
Krieger stated in court he committed the crime to raise money to support his heroin addiction.
