Carmi Man Sentenced to IDOC for Domestic Battery

CARMI – A Carmi man was sentenced to the Illinois Department of Corrections on a domestic battery charge in White County Monday.

White County State’s Attorney Denton Aud says 36-year-old Christopher D. Blazier will spend three years in IDOC and serve four years of mandatory supervised release.

Aud says Blazier had previously been placed on probation in 2019. However, he was found to have violated his probation with a sentencing hearing Monday afternoon.

The White County Sheriff’s Department was the original investigating agency.
