25 Year Sentence Given Child Sexual Predator

A Williamsport, Indiana man has been sentenced in Danville to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child.  Twenty-nine year old Johnathon R. Trammell was sentenced today in Vermilion County Circuit Court.

Vermilion County State’s Attorney Jacqueline Lacy says Trammell will be required to serve at least 85-percent of the sentence.  He will also be required to register for life as a sexual predator under the Sex Offender Registration Act.

Lacy says the offense occurred between April and August of last year.  Trammell had been staying with friends at their home in Danville when a child reported Trammell committed sexual contact with him.

The case was investigated by Danville Police.  Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child is a Class X Felony in Illinois.
