  • Michael C. Carr, Jackson County State’s Attorney, announced today that Stanley L.
    Cohen, 31, formerly of Carbondale was sentenced in Jackson County Court to nine years in the
    Illinois Department of Corrections for an Armed Robbery which occurred May 13, 2014, at a
    local convenience store.
    The defendant entered Casey’s General Store, entered the restroom, placed a bandana
    over his face, exited the restroom and went to the counter and demanded money. He pointed
    what appeared to be a handgun at the employee and was given approximately $300.00 in United
    States Currency before fleeing the scene. Carbondale Police Officers interviewed several
    individuals and learned that the suspect was the defendant. When the defendant was arrested, he
    admitted that he was the one who committed this offense.
    This is a day for day sentence meaning that he will be eligible to get one day off of his
    sentence for each day he completes in prison without incident. Upon his release from the Illinois
    Department of Corrections he will be subject to three years of Mandatory Supervised Release.
    This case was investigated by the Carbondale Police Department and the Du Quoin City
    Police Department and was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney Mark Hamrock.
