James L. Smith of Jonesboro, Illinois was sentenced to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections on Friday, August 4.

Smith admitted to a petition for revocation of conditional discharge for the original offense of domestic battery, which is a class 4 felony.

According to the release, Smith pleaded guilty to the original charge back in April 2016.

However, in January 2017, a warrant out for Smith's arrest was issued for failing to appear in court and Smith was arrested in May 2017.

A Petition of Revocation of Conditional Discharge was filed in May 2017 after Smith committed a new offense in April 2017 in Jackson County, Illinois.

Smith will also serve four years of mandatory supervised release.
