DANVILLE — A jury trial has been set for a Danville man who faces six charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
David J. Woodrow, 41, was arraigned Friday during a preliminary hearing at the Vermilion County Courthouse. A jury trial has been set for 9 a.m. Oct. 15, at the courthouse, with Judge Nancy Fahey presiding.
Woodrow was arrested by Danville police last month on aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a male who was 15 years old at the time. According to court records, two incidents occurred in 2011 and one in 2012.
The Vermilion County State’s Attorney’s office filed six counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse:
• Three counts are based on the victim being between 13 and 17 years old, with the defendant being at least five years older than the victim.
• Three counts are based on the victim being between 13 and 18 years old, with the defendant holding a position of trust, authority or supervision over the victim.
Aggravated criminal sexual abuse is a Class 2 felony.
Man found guilty, sentenced
A Vermilion County jury Friday found Deontae L. Franklin, 35, of Danville, guilty of aggravated battery with a firearm.
Franklin also was sentenced Friday to 24 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections and is required to serve 85 percent of the sentence.
The case stems back to July 29, 2017, when police were called around 7 a.m. to the 1200 block of Clarence Street for a report of a shooting.
Police officers found Bobby Hansbrough, also of Danville, had been shot once in the abdomen. He was able to identify Franklin as the perpetrator.
The case was investigated by Danville Police Department detectives Pat Carley and Phil Wilson who arrested Franklin on Aug. 1 and recovered the handgun that was used in the shooting.
Aggravated battery with a firearm is a Class X felony carrying a sentence of six to 30 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney Stephanie Weber and Christopher McCallum.
