Harrisburg, IL man sentenced to 23 years in prison on home invasion, drug charges

SALINE COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - A Harrisburg, Illinois man has been sentenced to 23 years in prison on home invasion and drug charges.

James B. Gibbs, 50, was sentenced on July 2. He was convicted of home invasion and possession of a controlled substance after a two-day bench trial in March.

According to Saline County State's Attorney Michael J. Henshaw, Gibbs was sentenced to eight years on the two felonies. An additional 15 years was automatically added to the term because Gibbs had a gun during the home invasion and threatened someone in the home with it.

Assistant State's Attorney Eva Walker prosecuted the case. Judge Walden Morris presided.
