Man Accused of Giving Teen Heroin Twice Violated Probation: Court Records
Police arrested Matthew Lefebvre, 19, on misdemeanor charges of child endangerment for allegedly supplying a 16-year-old girl with heroin, a move that appears to have violated his probation on a 2011 theft case.
A 19-year-old Palos Hills man sitting in Cook County jail after he allegedly supplied a 16-year-old girl with heroin twice violated his probation from a previous theft case, according to court records.
Matthew Lefebvre received a $150,000 bond after being charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and child endangerment on Nov. 7. Police also arrested Witold Studencki, 20, of Palos Hills, who is charged with endangering the health and life of a child, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, felony possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug equipment.
Court records show he was taken into custody on a bond order for violating probation on a 2011 theft case.
Initially charged with theft and two counts of aggravated battery, Lefebvre pleaded guilty to one count of theft in a plea agreement with prosecutors. He was sentenced to 40 hours of SWAP—a work program that is an alternative to jail time for non-violent offenders—two years probation and $730 in court costs.
Lefebvre will appear in front of a Cook County judge on the new charges on Dec. 15. and also is scheduled to return court for the probation violation on Dec. 17.
