A Batavia man who pleaded guilty to theft this month must serve 30 months in the Department of Corrections, according to Kane County court records.

Depree M. Sharp, 29, was charged in December 2013 with two counts each of felony residential burglary and felony theft on allegations he burglarized two Batavia residences – one in the 400 block of Houston Street, the other in the 0-100 block of North Jefferson Street.

Stolen items included jewelry, a video game system and a computer, according to court records.

Court records indicate Sharp pleaded guilty April 11 to one count of theft, and the other charges were dropped.

Judge Susan Clancy Boles sentenced him to 30 months in the Department of Corrections with credit for 120 days of time served, records show.

Sharp also must pay about $3,630 in restitution and $380 in fines and costs, according to records.
