Carter Guilty Plea Rejected
Crawford County, Illinois Circuit Court Judge Christopher Weber yesterday rejected a guilty plea by Jared Carter.
Carter is accused of escaping the Robinson, Illinois Correctional Center on August 30th.
Weber said based on Carter's lengthy criminal history, he’s uncomfortable with a proposed six-year prison sentence.
Carter qualifies for Class 10 sentencing because of his history.
The proposed six-year sentence is at the bottom end of potential sentences for Class 10 charges.
Carter's attorney withdrew the guilty plea since it was rejected.
Carter will be back in court on March 26th for another hearing.
