Nineteen-year-old Matthew Lefebvre pleaded guilty to two counts of misdemeanor child endangerment for supplying a teenager who overdosed on heroin twice.
According to court records, Lefebvre took the plea in late January, but the convictions won't add to a two-year prison sentence he received for violating his probation with the new arrests.
Lefebvre received credit for 160 days time served in the Cook County jail.
A 19-year-old man accused of giving heroin to a teen girl was sentenced to two years in the state prison Tuesday for violating probation.
Matthew Lefebvre has been credited with 84 days time served due to his most recent stint in the Cook County Department of Corrections.
In a 2011 robbery, Lefebvre pleaded guilty in Cook County Judge Colleen Ann Hyland's Bridgeview courtroom. Hyland sentenced him to 24 months of probation, 40 days of service through the county's non-violent offender work program $730 in court costs.
Lefebvre's recent arrest in connection to an Oct. 26, 2012 incident, where police were called at 11:30 p.m. to a home in the 11000 block of Helena Drive to help with an ambulance call for a teen who had overdosed, violated his probation, authorities said. The teen was hospitalized but didn't die from the overdose.
The girl reportedly overdosed a second time in November and Lefebvre was arrested again.
In addition to his violation of probation plea agreement, Lefebvre is expected to enter a guilty plea later this week on his most recent charges before Judge Patrick T. Rogers, which include misdemeanor endangering the life of a child. A co-defendant in the Oct. 26 incident, Nicolette Martinu pleaded guilty and received probation.
