XZAVIER GIBBS RECEIVES A TOTAL OF 15 YEARS IN PRISON

On April 18, 2018, Xzavier B. Gibbs, age 20, of Harrisburg, Illinois entered pleas of guilty in Saline County, Illinois Circuit Court to Aggravated Robbery (a Class 1 felony) and Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon (a Class 4 felony). Judge Todd Lambert sentenced Gibbs to 11 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, with 2 years mandatory supervised release on the Aggravated Robbery charge, and Judge Walden E. Morris sentenced Gibbs to 2 ½ years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, with 1 year mandatory supervised release on the Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon charge. The sentences imposed by Judge Lambert and Judge Morris are to be served consecutive to one another and consecutive to a previous sentence imposed in a Gallatin County, Illinois case. Gibbs received a combined total of 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections from all of the Saline and Gallatin County cases.

The Aggravated Robbery charges against Gibbs arose out of an incident in which Gibbs took property from a Harrisburg woman by the use of force and while indicating that he was armed with a handgun. The Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon charge against Gibbs arose out of an incident in which Gibbs was found in possession of a loaded pistol at a time when he possessed neither a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card nor an Illinois Concealed Carry License. The investigation of each of Gibbs’ cases was led by the Harrisburg Police Department. Saline County Assistant State’s Attorney, Jason Olson, led the successful prosecution of Gibbs.
