Recent Williamson County Court Cases

WILLIAMSON COUNTY — The following court cases were heard in Williamson County and overseen by State’s Attorney Brandon Zanotti:


A Carterville woman was recently sentenced to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for violating the terms of her probation on a previous theft conviction.

33-year-old Mandi Grammer committed retail theft against Casey’s General Store in Hurst on April 27, 2017. The theft was charged as a felony because Grammar had a prior theft conviction.

Grammer pled guilty to the theft charge in September 2018, and on December 7, 2018, was sentenced to probation and a 180-day county jail sentence. Grammer never showed up to the county jail to serve her sentence, and a petition to revoke her probation was filed.

A Williamson County judge then sentenced her to three years in state prison.


A Montgomery, Illinois resident pled guilty and was sentenced Friday to two years in the IDOC for unlawful possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony.

July 14, 2018, a Marion Police officer was called to Rural King where complaints were being made about 31-year-old Ashley Collins behaving belligerently in the parking lot and causing a scene. Collins was found to be in possession of methylphenidate/hydrochloride, a controlled substance under the Illinois Controlled Substance Act.

Collins has prior convictions out of northern Illinois for possession of drugs and retail theft.


A Marion man was sentenced Monday to two years in the IDOC for unlawful possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, a Class 4 felony.

25-year-old Luke DeWitt was charged with the offense following the execution of a search warrant on his home in March 2017. During the search, Marion Police officers found over 15 grams of cannabis and materials used for its sale.

DeWitt has prior convictions for burglary and criminal damage to government property.
