A Missouri man, previously serving a prison sentence for aggravated criminal sexual assault, has been charged in Clinton County Circuit Court with another Class X crime.
Jamil Jaber, age 29, from Wildwood, Missouri, was given 15 years in prison in 2009 after a negotiated plea of guilty to the sexual assault charge. Recently, that plea was withdrawn and Jaber was released from custody in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
The defendant was remanded to the custody of the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department, and Jaber has now been charged in Clinton County with alleged aggravated kidnapping on January 19, 2009.
The Class X charge alleges Jaber, by force or threat of imminent force, carried a female from one place to another against her will and inflicted bodily harm on the victim.
A preliminary hearing on the kidnapping case is scheduled for January 3 plus a status hearing on the old case will also be held.
