Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis has announced that Michael A. Najar, 43, 5790 Route 34, Oswego, was sentenced to a total of 7 years in prison for two charges of Unlawful Failure to Report as a Sex Offender.
Najar was originally charged in September of 2014 when he failed to report to the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office as required by the Sex Offender Registration Act. This case was heard by a Kendall County jury who found Najar guilty in August.
For this offense, Najar was sentenced to 3 years in prison. While on bond for the original charge, Najar again failed to report to the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office in March of 2015. Najar entered a plea of guilty to that offense and was sentenced to 4 years in prison.
By law, Najar must serve a total of 7.5 years. Najar will also have to serve 2 years of Mandatory Supervised Release.
Najar was originally convicted of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a 13-16 year old in DuPage County in 2007.
Weis noted that Najar has a history of non-compliance with reporting as well as an extensive criminal record.
“Requiring those who are mandated to register and report as sex offenders to comply with their registration requirements is vital to the protection of our community," he said. "Those that choose to ignore these laws will face punishment."
