Former Geneva student sentenced in threat to dean

ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – A judge sentenced a former Geneva High School student Thursday to probation on a felony charge of threatening via email to kill a dean last year.

Daniel T. Diomedes, 19, now of St. Charles, was sentenced by Kane County Associate Judge James C. Hallock to 101 days in jail, which he has already served, 30 months probation and other conditions.

Hallock convicted Diomedes on May 24 in a bench trial of one count of felony disorderly conduct. The charge had a penalty of one to three years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000.

On April 26, 2011, when Diomedes was a student at the high school, he sent an email in which he threatened to kill a dean. The person who received the email contacted Geneva police and high school officials to report the threat.

Hallock also ordered that Diomedes must remain on global positioning system monitoring, which will be re-evaluated in 12 months; follow doctors’ orders to take medication for depression; avoid contact with the victim; avoid violating state laws and local ordinances; and not enter Geneva High School.

Diomedes had been free on $2,000 bond and GPS monitoring.
