Mill Creek Man Sentenced for Sex Abuse

JONESBORO – A Mill Creek man was sentenced Tuesday to three years in state prison for sex abuse.

Union County State’s Attorney Tyler R. Edmonds says 37-year-old Jeremy McCormick was sentenced on one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse – a Class 2 felony.

McCormick will serve a two year period of mandatory supervised release. He must register as a sex offender for life.

Edmonds says McCormick committed an act of sexual penetration with a 16-year-old minor in June of last year.

McCormick was arrested last October as part of an investigation by Illinois State Police.
