Imposing Class X Sentence Based on a Class 2 Conviction

In People v. Owens, 377 Ill. App. 3d 302, 305-06, 878 N.E.2d 1189, 316 Ill. Dec. 165 (2007), on direct appeal, the Court questioned the imposition of a Class X sentence based on a Class 2 conviction. " It is clear from the record before us that the trial court either relied on an insufficient number of Class 2 or greater felony convictions, or relied on an impermissible double enhancement to find defendant eligible for Class X sentencing." Owens, 377 Ill. App. 3d at 305.
