Centralia Man Scheduled to Be Sentenced Today for Sexually Assaulting a Child

MARION COUNTY — A 50-year-old Centralia man is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in Marion County Court for sexually assaulting a child.

Carl L. Privatt had challenged his mental fitness to serve a sentence for his May 2019 conviction. A mental fitness examination was ultimately conducted and completed, with the expert finding Privatt mentally fit.

He had waived his right to a jury trial and was instead tried by Judge Mark Stedelin who found him guilty of Class X felony charge of predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13.

The prosecution had earlier agreed to a 30-year cap on the sentence, which is the maximum Privatt will be facing Friday when Judge Stedelin hands down that decision.
