Danville man gets 33 years in prison for second-degree murder

Thirty-eight-year-old Danville, Illinois resident Jason Roberts  was sentenced to 33 years in prison on Tuesday, May 31. His crimes include striking Dylan Scales, the boyfriend of his ex-girlfriend Michelle Crawley, with a baseball bat, and fatally hitting Robert Collins with his vehicle, in October 2015.

Roberts was supposed to stand trial on first-degree murder and aggravated driving under the influence charges for the Oct. 22, 2015 death of Collins, but his charges were reduced to second-degree murder after he made a guilty plea. Roberts was also charged with aggravated battery for striking Scales on Oct. 21, 2015, just a few hours after the incident with Collins.
