  • People v. Hanson


  • Following a jury trial in February 2008, in the circuit court of Du Page County, defendant, Eric Hanson, was convicted of four counts of first degree murder (720 ILCS 5/91(a)(1) (West 2006)), two counts of armed robbery (720 ILCS 5/182(a)(1) (West 2006)), two counts of aggravated kidnapping (720 ILCS 5/102(a)(8) (West 2006)) and two counts of identity theft (720 ILCS 5/16G15(a)(1), (d)(1)(D) (West 2006)). The jury found death to be the appropriate sentence on the murder convictions and the circuit court of Du Page County imposed a sentence of death. The circuit court also found that the armed robbery and aggravated kidnapping convictions merged into the murder convictions and, therefore, did not enter sentences on those counts. However, the circuit court did sentence defendant to concurrent terms of 15 years for the identity theft convictions. Defendant now appeals both his conviction and sentence.
