Carbondale man sentenced after threatening officer, trespassing

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

A Carbondale man has been sentenced for threatening an officer and criminal trespassing following a jury trial.

That is according to Michael C. Carr, Jackson County State's Attorney.

Daniel R. Hamilton, of Carbondale, Illinois, was convicted of the charges following a jury trial which was held on Feb. 25. He was sentenced on Wednesday, April 16, 2015.

Hamilton was sentenced to 40 months in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

The defendant will serve a period of mandatory supervised release of one year upon his release from the Department of Corrections.

On December 14, 2014, officers with the Carbondale Police Department were called to the Good Samaritan House on Marion Street in Carbondale for the report of a disturbance.

Staff at the Good Samaritan House asked the Hamilton to leave the grounds, and he refused.

Officers learned that Hamilton had been the cause of the disturbance and that he had been previously banned from the property.

Hamilton was then placed under arrest for trespassing.

After Hamilton was placed under arrest, he started to threaten one of the officers, saying he would kill his mother and father and his wife and children.

The defendant's threats were recorded by the officer's squad car video camera.

The investigation was conducted by the Carbondale Police Department.

Assistant State's Attorney Casey Bloodworth was responsible for the prosecution of this case.
