30-year Prison Terms in Decatur Home Invasion

DECATUR, Ill. (AP) — Two men have been sentenced to 30-year prison terms after they pleaded guilty to a felony home invasion in Decatur last year.

The Decatur Herald-Review reports Cameo D. McCrory and Charles E. Reed, both 23 years old, appeared Friday before Macon County Circuit Judge Thomas E. Griffith. The men’s plea deals had been accepted two weeks earlier.

The men were accused in a May 2013 home invasion that allegedly involved attacking two women with homemade blowtorches and forcing them and two men to perform sex acts at gunpoint during a robbery.

The original charges included armed robbery, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated criminal sexual assault. Those charges could have meant much lengthier prison sentences.
McCrory and Reed have been held in the Macon County Jail since their arrests last year.
