Carmi Man Sentenced Monday for Multiple Felonies

CRMI – A Carmi man was sentenced Monday in White County Court to the Illinois Department of Corrections for Unlawful Use of Property, a Class 2 felony and Driving While License Revoked, a Class 4 felony.

According to White County State’s Attorney Denton Aud, 30-year-old Daniel G. Desper will spend three years in prison on the charge and serve one year of mandatory supervised released for Unlawful Use of Property and three years in IDOC on the Driving While License Revoked charge. Aud said this was the third time Desper has driven with his license revoked.

Desper had previously been placed on probation in 2021 for the methamphetamine-related offense of Unlawful Use of Property. However, he violated the probation and was charged on March 30, 2022 with driving on a revoked license for the third time, a class 4 felony, upon an arrest by the Carmi Police Department.

The sentences were entered Monday morning with the sentences ordered to run concurrently, according to Aud.
