Anna Man Sentenced to Prison for Domestic Battery

Union County State’s Attorney Tyler R. Edmonds announced today that Joseph H. Silliman (DOB 12/21/1983) of Anna has been sentenced to Eighteen (18) months in the Illinois Department of Corrections after pleading guilty to one (1) count of Domestic Battery, a Class 4 Felony.  Silliman will also serve four (4) years of Mandatory Supervised Release (formerly known as Parole).  Silliman was arrested in June 2016 following an investigation by the Anna Police Department.  Silliman repeatedly struck a family or household member in the head with his fists.  The Domestic Battery charge was elevated to a felony due to Silliman having previously been convicted of Domestic Battery.
