Carbondale Man Sentenced for Burglary

Mar 2, 2020

A Carbondale man is sentenced for burglary and for violations of an earlier case.

The Jackson County State's Attorney says 28-year-old Dewayne Perrian received a 10-year sentence on one count of residential burglary.

Perrian pleaded guilty last fall to burglarizing a 22-year-old SIU-C student's residence in December 2018. Carbondale Police officers found video surveillance of Perrian approaching the residence and then being chased by the victim.

Perrian was already serving a sentence of conditional discharge for criminal trespass to residence and resisting a peace officer when he committed the December 2018 residential burglary.

Perrian’s conditional discharge in that earlier case was revoked due to him committing the new offense, and he was re-sentenced to six years in prison on the felony Criminal Trespass to Residence charge. He was sentenced to 180 days in the Jackson County Jail on the Resisting a Peace Officer charge.
