September 25, 2009, McHenry County Blog ran the press release from McHenry County State’s Attorney about Marcus Sessom.
Although the sentence could have been from 2-10 years, according to the release, Sessom is already back on the street.
Thanks to an alert reader for alerting me by putting a comment under the article.
I asked State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi for details and he wrote me,
“Marcus Sesson has been released. As to the charge of Intimidation, for which he was convicted, our office refused to negotiate with the defense, went to trial and Judge (Sharon) Prather sentenced him to 2 ½ years to the Department of Corrections.
“Based upon the statutory good time, etc. (which I believe was passed to ease jail crowding) he only had to serve 9 months.
“He was given credit for time served since he was arrested on May 14, 2009 to November 9, 2009.”
