CARMI – A Carmi man was sentenced Monday in White County Court Monday to the Illinois Department of Corrections for burglary and stealing a vehicle.
According to White County State’s Attorney Denton Aud, 25-year-old James L. Parker was sentenced to five years in prison and will serve one year of mandatory supervised release for Burglary, a Class 2 felony. Parker also received the same sentence on two Possession of Stolen Vehicle charges, both Class 2 felonies.
Aud said Parker was previously sentenced to 11 years and 10 months in the Illinois Department of Corrections in June after failing to appear for his sentencing hearing on two other matters.
While awaiting sentencing, he committed the offenses mentioned which were investigated by the Grayville Police Department, the Carmi Police Department, and the White County Sheriff’s Department, respectively.
Aud said the sentences in these cases were ordered to run consecutively to the 11 years 10 months that he previously received.
Judge Michael Valentine was the presiding judge that imposed the sentences.
Public Defender Brian Shinkle represented Parker. State’s Attorney Denton Aud prosecuted the cases.
