Clarification. Scott Curley received 25 years to life in prison. The Kane County Sheriff’s Office felt highly disappointed with the verdict, and thought he should have been given natural life in prison. Curley also got five years for burglary, and seven and a half years for aggravated assault (which are to run consecutive (or stacked) on top of the 25-to-life) and one year for theft (which will run concurrent). Curley was also given credit for the time he has served since the murder.
