CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

The Jackson County State’s Attorney is reporting that a Carbondale man was sentenced to 10 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections after pleading guilty to several felony charges on Sunday, July 28.

On April 26, 2016 at approximately 11 p.m., Carbondale police were dispatched to the area of North Springer and West Baird Streets in Carbondale after receiving reports of a grey Chevrolet Caprice driving through yards and running into and over numerous objects.

The vehicle matching the description was located and Robert L. Delmore, Sr., 38, of Carbondale, was identified as the driver. Delmore was slurring his speech and showing signs of confusion. Officers said he smelled strongly like alcohol. A field sobriety test was performed and Delmore was arrested for driving under the influence.

Officers later determined that he was driving on a revoked license.

As Delmore was being processed, he began to threaten the police officer, raising his fist toward the officer.

When the officer secured Delmore’s hand to the table to prevent further attempts, Delmore spit on the officer.  As he was being transported to the Jackson County Jail, he made direct threats to kill the officer upon his release.

On Sunday, July 28, Delmore pleaded guilty to the charges of aggravated battery (class 2 felony), threatening a public official (class 3 felony) and aggravated driving under the influence (class 4 felony).

Delmore was sentenced to serve 42 months in the Illinois Department of Corrections on each charge, followed by a two year period of mandatory supervised release on the  aggravated battery charge and a one year period of mandatory supervised release on the remaining charges.

The sentences are to run concurrently.

The investigation was conducted by the Carbondale Police Department.  Assistant State’s Attorney Penny Pierson was responsible for the prosecution of this case.
