Anna man sentenced to 18 months for domestic battery charge

An Anna man has been sentenced to 18 months in Illinois prison after pleading guilty to domestic battery. 

The Union County State’s Attorney’s Office says 32-year-old Joseph Silliman pleaded guilty to one county of domestic battery, which is a class 4 felony. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison followed by four years of mandatory supervised release. 

The attorney’s office says Silliman was arrested in June of 2016. The charge he was convicted of was elevated to a felony because he had a previous conviction for domestic battery.
