U.S. DISTRICT COURT, SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS--Willie Watson, 38, of East St. Louis, Ill., was sentenced this morning in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois to 18 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, on one count of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R.
