SALEM TEEN SENTENCED TO 7 YEARS FOR ROBBERY OF SANDOVAL MAN

SANDOVAL, IL — An 18-year-old Salem teen was sentenced Thursday in Marion County Court to 7-years in prison after he pleaded guilty to the lesser of four charges accusing him and two others with the alleged September 2019 armed robbery of a man in Sandoval.

Cameron Corrie had been charged with three Class X felonies for home invasion with a firearm, home invasion causing injury, and armed robbery, along with Class 1 felony residential burglary.

Corrie pleaded guilty Thursday to the residential burglary in exchange for the other three charges being dismissed.

Co-defendant, 18-year-old Gavin Mays, also of Salem, pleaded guilty to the same charge Thursday, in exchange for the Class X charges being dismissed. Mays was sentenced to four years probation, ordered to complete drug and alcohol treatment, and was given credit for 106 days served in county jail.

Corrie                                                                      Mays                                                                       Planitz

A third defendant, 18-year-old James Planitz, of Odin, is scheduled for a January 22 pretrial on the same charges.

The three were arrested in September for beating and robbing a male victim at a home in the 300 block of Oklahoma in Sandoval.

The victim reportedly had gone to the location to sell someone an X-box and when he arrived at the residence, three males beat him and took the X-box he was selling, along with $2,000 cash from his wallet.

He reported that at least two of the subjects were armed with guns.
