OREGON — An Ogle County judge passed down a six-year prison sentence to a Rochelle man on Monday.
Michael C. Rock, Ogle County State’s Attorney, announced that the judge Robert Hanson sentenced Charles Chamness to six years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for possession of a controlled substance, a Class 1 Felony.
This sentence will run consecutive to a 30-year Illinois Department of Corrections sentence the defendant received after he was found guilty of two counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm and one count of armed violence by an Ogle County jury on Feb. 9, 2012.
The defendant will be eligible for parole in January of 2040.
“I am pleased to announce to the citizens of Ogle County that our office has taken this violent felon off our streets for a significant amount of time,” Rock said.
