Carbondale is inching its way up to become the number one crime district in terms of the FBI Uniform Crime Index. Although that dubious honor does not bode well for Carbondale, it is a good sign for Champaign-Urbana, which currently occupies the number one spot.
The increase in Carbondale’s crime index is largely attributed to an spike in armed robbery and residential burglary attempts. Those two figures make up only part of the index, which also accounts for battery, burglary and sexual assault.
If you have been accused of a crime in either of these areas, contact the Champaign criminal defense lawyers of Bruno Law Offices at (217) 328-6000.
