Vermilion County Man sentenced 40 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections

In May of last year, after a bench trial before the Honorable Nancy Fahey, Percy Freeman was found guilty of First Degree Murder and Aggravated Battery. At trial, Prosecutors presented evidence through Danville Police Officers and independent witnesses that on April 24, 2019, Freeman, along with other individuals, tracked the victim Roosevelt Anderson through the Fair Oaks housing complex. When Freeman and his cohorts captured Anderson, they struck him with their fists, pistol whipped him, and then shot him one time in the head. Vital evidence in the case included surveillance video obtained from the Vermilion County Housing Authority, which captured the fatal attack.

Yesterday, April 26, 2022, Freeman was sentenced by Judge Fahey to forty (40) years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. The sentence shall be served at 100 percent, and will be followed by three (3) years of Mandatory Supervised Release (i.e., Parole). Upon his release from imprisonment, Freeman will be required to register as a Murderer pursuant to the Illinois Murderer and Violent Offender Against Youth Registration Act.

The Illinois Attorney General's Office prosecuted the case in cooperation with Vermilion County State's Attorney's Office. State's Attorney Jacqueline Lacy thanked the prosecution team and the Danville Police Department for their dedication to this investigation and ensuring the just resolution. She further noted that, "Criminals who insist on terrorizing our community will be held accountable and severely punished."

ILLINOIS STATE POLICE ANNOUNCE THE RESULTS OF PROJECT SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD

Illinois State Police (ISP) announces the results of Project Safe Neighborhood (PSN) saturation details conducted from October 2021 to the present date.  During this period, ISP officers worked jointly with officers in several counties to include Peoria, Champaign, Hancock, Cass, Coles, Christian, Sangamon, Vermilion, and Moultrie.  Officers worked a total of 27 proactive saturation details. 

 

As a result of the details, 85 arrests were made, 199 warnings were issued, and 142 citations were issued. The arrests included charges of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse, Possession of Child Pornography, Possession of Methamphetamine, Internet Crimes Against Children, Unlawful Use of Weapons, Obstructing, Manufacture/Delivery of Cannabis, Possession of Controlled Substance, Aggravated Driving Under the Influence, Armed Violence, Driving While License Suspended, and several Wanted on Arrest Warrants.

The goal of PSN details are to make neighborhoods safer by preventing criminal activity and removing guns, drugs, and violent criminals from the streets.

 

U.S. Attorney for the Central District of Illinois, Gregory K. Harris stated, “Implementation of the Illinois State Police Project Safe Neighborhood targeted enforcement patrols, in partnership with local law enforcement agencies, has and continues to be effective in removing individuals from our cities that are responsible for the increase in violence.  Continued enforcement by Illinois State Police, in collaboration and cooperation with local law enforcement agencies, not only increases public confidence in knowing that law enforcement is working together to make neighborhoods safe, but also, it increases the trust between law enforcement and the communities that they serve.”

Choir Joins Symphony for April 30 Concert

The Danville Symphony Orchestra is teaming up with the Danville Children’s Choir for the “Stars of the Silver Screen” concert on Sat., Apr. 30 at the Fischer Theatre. The program includes music from famous movies like the Harry Potter series, To Kill a Mockingbird, Gone with the Wind, Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, and Danny Elfman’s Batman.

Jeremy Swerling returns as the DSO maestro along with an orchestra comprised of some of the region’s top musicians.

For the children’s chorus, Brent Lockhart is leading students from Northeast Elementary School in the song “When You Believe” from Disney’s Prince of Egypt. Marty Lindvahl will direct the children in singing and dancing to music from The Lion King.

A 34-year music educator, Ms. Lindvahl has enjoyed an illustrious career conducting show choirs and musical groups throughout the Midwest, including the Danville Barbershop Chorus. She is also the featured vocalist for the popular jazz band, Doc Ashton and the Root Canals.

Ms. Lindvahl says that the children are eager to perform in this concert, which the pandemic had delayed for two years. “They’re certainly excited about The Lion King’s music and the opportunity to perform on the Fischer stage with the orchestra,” she says. “The audience will experience the enormous amount of energy and electricity that the children’s choir brings to their performances, but especially so now after they had to wait since 2020 to be able to perform in this concert.”

The 7:30 p.m. concert has nearly sold out, but some tickets remain on the main floor and balcony for $35. Students with a valid ID can buy tickets for $10.

Central Illinois Land Bank Authority awards contract to demolish 6 Hoopeston properties

The Central Illinois Land Bank Authority (CILBA) awarded a $78,500 contract to Lee Farms Excavating to demolish 6 residential properties in Hoopeston over the next few weeks. This builds off the twelve demolitions that CILBA did throughout Vermilion County last Fall – four of those properties were located in Hoopeston. The demolition work is being funded through a $125,000 Illinois Housing Development Authority Strong Communities Program grant, a $100,000 matching grant from the Hoopeston Retirement Village Foundation, and a $50,000 match from the City of Hoopeston.

 

Bill Nicholls, who is a Board member of the land bank and the Hoopeston Retirement Village Foundation, said “the foundation was excited to provide matching funds on the state grant so CILBA could scale up their demolition work locally. This is a great example of collaboration where the land bank wrote that state grant for Hoopeston and that was matched by a local foundation and the City. The land Bank has also been a great resource for technical and legal assistance that the smaller communities don't have access to.” CILBA is excited to have over $250k,000 to really move the needle on much needed demolitions in Hoopeston.

 

The following 6 properties are being demolished by the land bank: 320 Front Street, 322 Front Street, 520 E Honeywell, 210 E Washington, 406 E Thompson, and 908 W Washington. Two of the properties were donated to the land bank, two were purchased from the County Trustee, and another two required nine months of legal work to obtain the property title.

 

Kellie Ferrell, a Hoopeston City Councilor, said “the land bank has been a great resource in tackling some eyesore properties that were top priorities for the City. We’re thrilled with this land bank partnership and excited to keep the work going – CILBA has already identified the next batch of 4 properties to be demolished.”

 

Over the last two years, CILBA has raise over $500k for demolition work throughout Vermilion County. Besides the Hoopeston demolitions, the land bank also wrote grant applications for Georgetown, Rankin, Ridge Farm and Westville. Each community received a $45,000 grant from Illinois Housing Development Authority Strong Communities Program that will be administered by the land bank.

Danville Library Program hopes to assist Small Business

DANVILLE, IL.- In partnership with the Small Business Development Center at DACC and Vermilion Advantage, the 
Danville Library Foundation is bringing together a consortium of business leaders to offer advice to area small businesses 
beginning Wednesday, April 6th at 8:00 AM at the Danville Public Library and continuing the first Wednesday of every 
month.
Members of the community looking to start a business or existing businesses looking for a fresh perspective are invited 
and encouraged to attend and seek input from people representing a broad base of experience; from staffing to finance to 
marketing and more.
“As I’ve stated repeatedly when building the concept, we’re hoping to create a very relaxed environment. A chance for 
current small businesses to interact with retired and veteran professionals, representing a wealth of knowledge” states 
Library Foundation Executive Director, Peter Blackmon. “I’ve brought together a great group minds to share information 
over a cup of coffee; and all for free.”
The program is intended to be a “First Step” in offering assistance. 
“It’s not our attempt to duplicate services as entities like Vermilion Advantage and SBDC have the resources.” Blackmon 
continues. “It’s why they are part of the program. We want to create a very relaxed, low pressure environment for people 
to gain some advice and, if necessary, get them to the outside resources afterwards.”
The Library Foundation, in partnership with the Danville Public Library, is hoping to continue to expand programs like 
this.
At the end of April, DPL and Foundation is partnering with the United Way and Vermilion Advantage to bring the 
“Human Library” National Program to Danville.
