A Des Plaines man found guilty of a hate crime for harassing a woman wearing a shirt emblazoned with the Puerto Rican flag was sentenced Monday to two years of probation and 200 hours of community service, and forbidden from going into any Cook County forest preserves for two years.

Timothy G. Trybus, 63, was found guilty last month of a hate crime for verbally berating the woman in a forest preserve in 2018.

A cellphone video of Trybus berating Mia Irizarry went viral, not just because of the verbal assault, but also because a Cook County forest preserve police officer stood by and watched for a lengthy period before getting involved. The officer later resigned.

On Monday at the county courthouse in Skokie, Trybus’ voice cracked with emotion as he apologized for his drunken actions.
