Norris City Woman Sentenced to IDOC for Burglary

CARMI – A Norris City woman will spend the next four years in prison for burglary.

According to White County State’s Attorney Denton Aud, 39-year-old Amanda M. Schroeder will also serve one year of mandatory supervised release following her time in prison. She was sentenced Thursday in White County Court in Carmi.

Aud says Schroeder had previously been placed on probation in June of last year for the offense which is a Class 2 felony. However, her probation was revoked in March of this year with the sentencing hearing held Thursday.

During the sentencing hearing, State’s Attorney Denton Aud called three witnesses to testify while Public Defender Brian Shinkle called two witnesses to testify. Following arguments, Judge Webb ultimately sentenced Schroeder to the Illinois Department of Corrections.

The Carmi Police Department was the original investigating agency in the case.
