Marion man convicted of predatory criminal sex assault

MARION, IL — A Marion man was convicted Friday in Williamson County of two counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child – Class X felonies – and one count of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse – a Class 2 felony.

According to Williamson County State’s Attorney Brandon Zanotti, the convictions against 44-year-old David I. Blue came after a three-day trial last week.

Blue was charged with the three counts in February of last year when an investigation led by the Marion Police Department showed that Blue had committed the sexual offenses against a child under the age of 13 during the period of March 2018 through October 2019.

Blue had no criminal history and will be sentenced by a judge on Oct. 18. He faces up to 60 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. Blue was taken into custody immediately following the verdict, where he will be held until the sentencing.
