Marion, IL man sentenced for aggravated domestic battery

MARION, IL (KFVS) -

The Jackson County State’s Attorney announced today that a Marion man was sentenced in Jackson County Circuit Court to the Department of Corrections for aggravated domestic battery.

David J. Marks, 44, was convicted of aggravated domestic battery following a plea of guilty on June 22, 2015.

He was sentenced to serve three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, followed by a term of four years of mandatory supervised release.

On February 21, 2014, officers from the Carbondale Police Department were dispatched to the parking lot of the Best Buy store in Carbondale in response to a report of a battery incident.

Upon arrival they spoke with the victim, who told police that her ex-boyfriend came to her home and abducted her against her will.

The defendant drove her to the area of the Best Buy parking lot.

The victim told officers that the defendant used the seatbelt to strangle her and to prevent her from her attempts to escape from the vehicle.

When they arrived at the Best Buy parking lot, two private citizens heard her cry for help and intervened, allowing the victim to escape.

The defendant then drove off and was later apprehended.

This investigation was conducted by the Carbondale Police Department. Assistant State’s Attorney Mark Hamrock was responsible for the prosecution of this case.
