Carbondale man sentenced for robbery

A Carbondale man had been sentenced for his role in a robbery.

Jackson County State’s Attorney Michael Carr says the robbery occurred on June 21, 2014. The victim was standing in an alleyway behind the Icebox Bar just after it had closed.

At that time, 20-year-old Charleton Patterson, approached the victim, punched her in the chest, and forcibly tore her purse from her shoulder. Patterson then ran away past a surveillance camera that showed him carrying the victim’s purse.

Patterson was found guilty of the crime in October. He was sentenced to 12 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. He will get credit for the 90 days he has served.
