Taylor Cano

The man charged with attempting to kill an Oswego Police officer has been sentenced to 20 years in prison on a host of other charges.

Stemming from his incarceration in the Kendall County Jail, Taylor Cano was sentenced Friday on three charges of Aggravated Battery to a Corrections Deputy and one charge of Possession of Contraband in a Penal Institution. He had pleaded guilty but mentally ill to all four charges.

While in custody at the Kendall County Jail, Cano had been arrested several times, including once for possessing a toothbrush fashioned into a knife. 

Cano is awaiting a separate trial for shooting at an Oswego Police officer during an August 2015 incident in which he threatened a "massacre" near his home on Ashlawn Avenue in Oswego. He is facing additional charges of attempted murder of a police officer, attempted murder, and aggravated discharge of a firearm.
After sentencing last week Cano was sent directly to the Illinois Department of Corrections where he will undergo mental health treatment. His trial on the attempted murder charges will begin this summer, said Kendall County State's Attorney Eric Weis. 

"This sentence will help to ensure that he is give the mental health treatment he is requesting while protecting the public and those assigned to guard him," Weis said.
