Carbondale Man Pleads Guilty To Aggravated Battery Of Peace Officer

(CARBONDALE, IL) — A Carbondale man will spend the next six years in a state prison after pleading guilty Monday to the charge of aggravated battery of a peace officer. Jackson County State’s Attorney Michael Carr says besides the sentence, 25-year-old Devonte Perrian will also serve three years of mandatory supervised release after his time in prison. On March 22 of this year, a Carbondale police officer was sent to a home regarding a complaint of a person knocking on the door and windows. When the officer arrived, he saw Perrian near the front of the house. As the officer attempted to handcuff Perrian, a struggle ensued. A second officer arrived, called for help and then helped in Perrian’s apprehension. As Perrian fought with both officers, he bit one officer and used his thumbs to gouge the officer’s eyes. He then ran from the officers.
