Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis announced that Jacob K. Malloe (dob:12/16/1990, 2105 Timber Lane), of Wheaton, IL was convicted of Residential Burglary and Unlawful Possession of A Weapon (Firearm) by a Felon after entering pleas of guilty and was sentenced to seven years and six months in prison. Charges were filed against Malloe back in April of 2017 when he, along with two co-defendants, unlawfully entered into a house located in Kendall County portion of Montgomery. Malloe and his co-conspirators removed several thousand dollars’ worth of items from the home, including a safe, firearms, several hundred rounds of ammunition, jewelry, a television, United States Currency and collectible coins. After leaving the home, the trio took the items, including the safe, to the residence of another accomplice. Malloe and his co-defendants used tools to break into the safe and remove the contents, including two .44 caliber handguns. The parties split the proceeds and went their separate ways. Some of the jewelry was pawned at a local pawnshop, and some was recovered later at Malloe’s residence in Wheaton. Malloe, a prior convicted felon in the State of Illinois, could not legally possess a firearm under any circumstances. Malloe was charged with Residential Burglary and Unlawful Possession of Weapon by Felon, both felony offenses.
While in the custody of the Kendall County Jail, Malloe attacked and struck an inmate while passing that inmate in the hallway as he was being escorted to his cell area. That inmate was a potential witness against Malloe in the Residential Burglary case. Malloe was charged with the offenses of Aggravated Battery and Aggravated Intimidation for that offense. Malloe entered a plea of guilty on those offenses back in July of 2018. After a contested sentencing hearing in October, Judge Robert Pilmer sentenced Malloe to four (4) years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for those offenses, to be served consecutive to the Residential Burglary and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon by Felon.
State’s Attorney Eric Weis commended the efforts of the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office in bringing Malloe to justice. Malloe must serve a total of eleven years and six months in prison before serving two (2) years of Mandatory Supervised Release, otherwise known as parole, upon his release. Assistant State’s Attorney Robert Dore prosecuted the case and secured the convictions.
