A Chicago man faces a possible prison sentence for pretending that a truck he parked outside of a casino in Aurora contained an explosive device earlier this year.

According to the Kane County State's Attorney's Office, a judge found 30-year-old Mustadin Muadinov of Chicago guilty of Class 3 felony Disorderly Conduct on Friday. Muadinov waived his right to a jury trial.

Attorneys presented evidence during the four-day trial that the evening of Feb. 12, 2019, Muadinov intentionally led officials and police at the casino to believe that a bomb was concealed in a box truck he parked in front of the casino, prompting the evacuation of approximately 175 casino patrons and employees.

Muadinov’s next court appearance is set for Dec. 11 for motions and sentencing.

Muadinov faces a sentence between two and five years’ imprisonment in the Illinois Department of Corrections, or probation.

The judge revoked bond and ordered Muadinov to remain in custody at the Kane County Jail, where he has been held since his arrest in lieu of $700,000 bail.
