A Carbondale man has been sentenced to prison on a charge of criminal sexual assault.

Jackson County State's Attorney Mike Carr says Charles M. Minor, 30, was sentenced June 18 to six years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, followed by a three-year to natural life period of supervised release.

Upon his release from prison, Minor will be required to register as a sex offender.

According to Carr, on May 14, 2019, Carbondale Police responded to Memorial Hospital of Carbondale regarding a complaint of suspected criminal sexual assault to an unresponsive victim.

The investigation led to the arrest of Minor, who was charged with committing an act of sexual penetration upon an individual who was unable to understand the nature of the act.

On Jan. 13 of this year, Minor entered a plea of guilty.
