CHICAGO — An 18-year-old man pleaded guilty Monday morning in the mugging of Rahm Emanuel’s son Zach.

According to The Sun-Times, Phillip Payne was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to perform 50 hours of community service.

Prosecutors say 18-year-old Payne and another suspect punched Zach Emanuel and stole his iPhone. It happened across the street for the mayor’s heavily-guarded home in December.

Police say they were able to trace the stolen phone to Payne after it was sold twice. Investigators say Payne gave a full confession. They’re still looking for the second suspect.

The Sun-Times also reports that during the hearing Payne apologized to Emanuel’s wife, Amy Rule, for what he did.
