Georgetown man convicted of armed robbery in holdup at intersection

DANVILLE — A 21-year-old Georgetown man faces more than 20 years in prison after a jury convicted him of armed robbery this week.

Jordan Crosby was found guilty Wednesday by a Vermilion County jury at the conclusion of a three-day trial prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Jonathan McKay and Claire Nicholson of the Illinois Attorney General's Office.

Crosby was arrested and originally charged in November. Along with another man, he was accused of robbing two people in a pickup truck at Oak Street and Voorhees Street in Danville. Crosby was accused of pulling out a gun and pointing it at the victims and ordering them to turn over their possessions.

Crosby was found guilty of two counts of armed robbery and two counts of vehicular invasion. Because of his criminal history, Vermilion County State's Attorney Jacqueline Lacy said in a news release that he faces 21-75 years in prison at his sentencing, which is set for Oct. 10.
