Illinois man sentenced to 107 years for 2013 murder

Twenty-three-year-old Kamron Taylor was sentenced to 107 years by Kankakee County Circuit Judge Kathy Bradshaw-Elliott on May 11 for the shooting death of 21-year-old Nelson Williams, Jr., during a failed robbery back in 2013, according to a report in the Kankakee Daily Journal.

Bradshaw-Elliott told Taylor that he was a threat to the community and repeatedly proved to be dangerous. In April of this year, Taylor escaped from the Jerome Combs Detention Center before being re-captured three days later.

The defense team called a mitigation specialist to the stand, who had written a 15 page report on Taylor’s past, including evidence of abuse by relatives since the age of 3.

Champaign man pleads guilty to aggravated robbery, receives 15 years

Forty-two-year-old Champaign County resident Terry Leece was sentenced to 15 years in prison on March 9 by Coles County Circuit Judge Teresa Righter after pleading guilty to charges of aggravated robbery and attempted aggravated robbery, the Journal Gazette & Times-Courier reported.

Leece, who lives in St. Joseph, robbed a Walgreens and attempted to rob a CVS Pharmacy on the same morning in 2012.

His admission of guilt in January was the second time he pleaded guilty; he first did so last June, but he was allowed to withdraw his guilty plea without objection when it was learned two months later that he received incorrect information about the sentence he would be facing should he decide to plead guilty.
