Two Crossville Residents Sentenced to IDOC on Charges Stemming from Early April Traffic Stop in Carmi

CARMI – Two Crossville residents were sentenced in White County Monday to the Illinois Department of Corrections on charges stemming from a traffic stop in Carmi earlier this month.

White County State’s Attorney Denton Aud says 23-year-old Nicholas D. Page was sentenced to four years in IDOC with two years of mandatory supervised release and court costs for unlawful use of property – a Class 2 felony.

Thirty-six-year-old Amber Walkenbach was sentenced to three years in IDOC with two years of mandatory supervised release and court costs for unlawful use of property – a Class 2 felony – and three years in IDOC with one year of mandatory supervised release for obstructing justice – a Class 4 felony.

Aud says Page and Walkenbach were co-defendants that were both arrested on April 1 for being in possession of methamphetamine and a firearm. Walkenbach had been previously placed on probation for obstruction of justice with said probation being revoked based on the new arrest.

The Carmi Police Department was the arresting agency in their cases.
