An Elkville man was sentenced in Jackson County court on Tuesday to five years in prison.

According to a news release from Jackson County State’s Attorney Michael Carr’s office, Christian C. Kistner, 22, pleaded guilty to one count of residential burglary — an event that took place March 30. In May, Kistner was sentenced to 48 months of Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities probation, which he later violated the terms of.

The release said that during a July probation revocation hearing, it was found that Kistner had violated the terms of his probation by committing the criminal offences of driving while license revoked as well being in possession of drug paraphernalia.

Kistner was sentenced Tuesday to five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, which will be followed by two years of mandatory supervised release. The release said Kistner meets the eligibility requirements to be placed in the Illinois Impact Incarceration Program through the IDOC, which is an intervention program designed to promote lawful behavior in criminal offenders through a highly structured program of discipline.
