Man admits breaking into Naperville mosque

A fourth teen admitted Tuesday to a role in burglarizing the Islamic Center of Naperville.

Mark Domingo is expected to receive probation and a stint in jail, similar to his three co-defendants, when he's sentenced later this fall.

The 19-year-old Naperville man pleaded guilty to burglarizing a place of worship - a felony punishable by probation or up to 15 years in prison.

Police installed a surveillance camera in summer 2006 inside the mosque at 450 Olesen Drive after officials complained of as many as 10 break-ins in which money was stolen from a donation box.

One week later, on July 21, 2006, police spotted Domingo and his three friends leaving the building at 450 Olesen Drive. Domingo and a second teen, Andrew Talty, 19, of Plainfield, were arrested outside the mosque.

Two other teens led police on a car chase that ended in Hinsdale when they crashed. Three police officers received minor injuries during the fracas.

Domingo is the final teen to be sentenced. Talty and Charles Htun, 20, of Naperville, spent time in DuPage County jail and were placed on three years probation. Each also paid $2,000 restitution.

David Henderson, 20, of Naperville, was sentenced to a prison boot-camp program and is on parole. He and Htun, who drove, were involved in the car chase.

None of the young men were charged with a hate crime. Prosecutors characterized the burglary as a crime of opportunity, not one motivated by faith or religion. [Link]
