{{featured_button_text}}

After a jury found him guilty in October of a weapons charge, Dayshawn M. Holmes, 22, was sentenced to time in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

A news release from Jackson County State’s Attorney Mike Carr’s office Thursday said Holmes was sentenced to six-and-a-half years in state prison followed by one year of mandatory supervised release.

Holmes, who has two burglary convictions, was caught June 18 with a weapon during an arranged purchase of an illicit gun by a police informant — Holmes was armed next to the intended police target acting as security for the deal, according to the news release.
