WHITE CO., Ill. — A convicted Crossville felon was taken into custody early this morning (Monday, June 10) and charged with beating his own mother.

According to details, at 6:44 a.m. a deputy was dispatched to 509 Fourth St., Apt. 1, Crossville, following a 911 call from Jessie Duncan, 75, of the 400 block of Main St., Crossville, who informed authorities that her grandson, 29-year-old Devin Ray Ward was beating his mother, 56-year-old Stacy Ward.

When officers arrived at the apartment where both Mrs. Ward and her son reside, they were met at the door by Devin Ward.

At that point Duncan told the deputy to “get him out” referring to Devin Ward, who was described as acting crazy for the past couple of days.

From down the hall, Stacy Ward advised she wanted to sign a complaint against her son because he had hit her on the left side of her face with an open hand.

After statements were gathered, Devin Ward was taken into custody and charged with misdemeanor Domestic Battery.

Ward was booked into the White County jail at 8:19 a.m. on $500 cash bond.

Ward became a convicted felon at the age of 18 when on September 29, 2008, he was convicted of Criminal Damage to Government Property and two counts of Unlawful Consumption of Liquor by a Minor, for which he was sentenced to probation for two years, conditional discharge for two years and ordered to undergo alcohol treatment and to pay $1,203 in fines and fees.

Ward was arrested December 11, 2014 and charged with felony Theft $500-$10,000.

He pleaded guilty January 5, 2015 to a reduced misdemeanor charge of Theft Under $500 and was sentenced to probation for another two years and ordered to pay $2,559.40, of which he still owes $1,934.40.

Ward is expected back in court later this month.
