PRINCETON — A Princeton man has been placed on 30 months probation after pleading guilty to two Class 4 felonies of unlawful restraint and to the Class A misdemeanor of a violation of an order of protection.
Eugene A. Storm, 61, entered his guilty pleas on Dec. 11 before Associate Circuit Judge C.J. Hollerich. As conditions of the two and one-half year probation sentence, Storm was ordered to serve three weeks in the Bureau County Jail, continue counseling with the Veterans Administration, pay fines, fees and court costs totaling $1,437, and also pay $2,211 for the cost of electronic monitoring. Storm was also required to abide by an existing order of protection and pay a $20 monthly probation fee.
This is Storm’s first conviction.
On Dec. 3, 2012, the Princeton Police Department responded to a domestic call. It was determined Storm had moved the victim against her will from one room of the residence to another. Storm was originally charged with domestic battery, and the victim thereafter sought an order of protection.
After the order of protection was entered on Jan. 10, there was another altercation at the victim’s residence. The victim reported Storm prevented her from entering her residence when she arrived home. Storm was then charged with unlawful restraint and violation of an order of protection for that incident and with another count of unlawful restraint for the Dec. 3, 2012, incident. As a condition of Storm’s bond, he was ordered to be monitored electronically with geographic restrictions.
