A 24-year-old man could end up serving a jail term should he violate the conditions of his sentencing for having stalked a female acquaintance from Naperville’s far southwest side.
Woodridge resident Ashish K. Kolli pleaded guilty to a Class 4 felony charge of stalking, according to records on file in Will County Circuit Court in Joliet. Naperville police said the harassment occurred late last year and early this year.
Police records indicated Kolli was arrested on Feb. 16. The woman, who was not identified, reportedly lives in the High Meadow area of Naperville.
Judge Daniel J. Rozak on June 27 accepted Kolli’s plea and sentenced him to six months in Will County Jail, followed by 2 1/2 years of probation, court records showed. A spokeswoman for State’s Attorney James Glasgow confirmed Wednesday the jail term is being held in abeyance.
Kolli will have to serve some or all of the jail time if he fails to comply with the other conditions of his sentence, the spokeswoman said. Those terms include having no further contact of any sort with the stalking victim or members of her family.
An examination of court documents revealed Kolli had no prior criminal record in Will, DuPage and Kane counties.
Police Sgt. Lou Cammiso in February said Kolli “had been stalking the victim and her family for several months” prior to his arrest. Kolli “knew the victim from a previous working relationship, and no personal relationship ever existed” between them, Cammiso said.
“The victim called the police to her house and police responded, saw the suspect and spoke with him,” Cammiso said of Kolli. He “voluntarily came to the police department for additional questioning and was subsequently arrested.”
Kolli was booked into Will County Jail on Feb. 18 and was released later that day on bond, according to jail records. He has been free on bond since that time.
