Paul Forker

Forker

A man on Wednesday was sentenced to serve eight years in prison after he stole property from a shed in Dowell earlier this year.

According to a news release from Jackson County state's attorney Michael C. Carr, Paul Forker, 50, was sentenced as a Class X offender for the burglary of a locked shed on Feb. 6 in Dowell because of his prior criminal history.

Burglary is typically a Class 2 felony, but Forker's criminal past led to the eight-year sentence in Illinois Department of Corrections, to be followed by three years of mandatory supervised release.
