Man sent to prison after plea in sex abuse case
MONTICELLO — A Decatur man who admitted engaging in sexual conduct with a teen-age girl in Piatt County has been sentenced to four years in prison.
Cameron Shipman, 24. pleaded guilty last week before Judge Dan Flannell to a single count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, admitting he had sex with a girl who was 14 at the time of the contact in April.
The act took place at a home in Hammond, according to Piatt County State's Attorney Dana Rhoades.
In exchange for Shipman's plea, Rhoades dismissed a second count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse alleging contact with the same girl.
