SALINE CO., Ill. - Saline County State's Attorney Jayson Clark has announced sentencing of a teen out at IYC for an incident that took place at the juvenile facility.

On August 3, 2017, Jaylan Banks, 18, entered a plea of guilty in Saline County Circuit Court to a Class 2 felony charge of Aggravated Battery.

Judge Walden E. Morris sentenced Banks to 8 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, with 2 years of mandatory supervised release.

On April 21, 2017, the Saline County State’s Attorney’s Office filed charges against Banks. Those charges arose out of an incident in which it was alleged that Banks, an IYC-Harrisburg inmate, struck Jacob Miller in the face while Miller was working as a guard inside IYC‐Harrisburg.

The investigation of Banks’ case was led by Officer Brent Davis of the Harrisburg Police Department.
