A former Batavia man is headed to prison for severely injuring an infant in 2011.
Kane County Judge John A. Barsanti has sentenced 54-year-old Nicholas E. Glucksmann, now living in Wheaton, to seven years in prison. Barsanti convicted Glucksmann on July 8, 2015, of aggravated battery, a Class X felony; aggravated domestic battery, a Class 2 felony; and aggravated battery to a child, a Class 3 felony.
Glucksmann waived his right to a jury trial.
Kane County prosecutors presented evidence that on the evening of April 16, 2011, Glucksmann and his girlfriend brought an infant that lived in their house to the emergency room after the child began to lose consciousness at the Batavia residence in the 300 block of South Batavia Avenue that Glucksmann and the girlfriend shared, according to a news release from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Emergency room doctors determined that the child had suffered head injuries, sent the child to a Chicago hospital, and called police to report suspected child abuse, according to the release.
When interviewed by police, Glucksmann said the child fell off a bed and onto the floor. Doctors said the child’s injuries were inconsistent with Glucksmann’s story, according to the release.
The child continues to recover from the injuries and is expected to live a normal life, the release said.
In addition to the prison term, Glucksmann must register in accordance with Illinois’ Violence Against Children Registration Act.
