Aurora man gets 21 tears for armed robbery

February 11, 2016

An Aurora man has been sentenced to prison for robbing a man at gunpoint.

Tranon D. Meeks, 27 (d.o.b. 5-6-1988), of the 400 block of Blackhawk Street, Aurora, was sentenced Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2016, by Circuit Judge John A. Barsanti to 
21 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Meeks was convicted Oct. 28, 2015, by a Kane County jury, of armed robbery, a Class X felony, and possession of cannabis, a Class A misdemeanor.

Prosecutors presented evidence that at about 5 p.m. Jan. 9, 2014, the victim went to Meeks’ home to sell Meeks marijuana. When the victim arrived, Meeks pointed a 
.22-caliber Marlin semiautomatic rifle at the victim and said, “You know what this is.” Meeks took the victim’s watch, wallet containing an unknown amount of cash, cellular telephone, backpack containing miscellaneous items and the marijuana.

Meeks’ sentence was enhanced because he was in possession of a firearm during the commission of the crime.

According to Illinois law, Meeks is eligible for day for day sentencing. He receives credit for at least 762 days served in the Kane County jail.

The case was prosecuted by Kane County Assistant State’s Attorneys Sal LoPiccolo and Alex Bederka.
