KINMUNDY MAN HELD WITHOUT BOND ON
SALE OF STOLEN MOTOR VEHICLES CHARGES

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May3, 2011

James C. Riley, 40, of Kinmundy, Illinois, was detained, that is, he was ordered to be held in custody without bond pending his trial, by a federal magistrate judge in East St. Louis, on Monday, May 2, 2011, after being indicted in March on seven counts of sale of stolen motor vehicles, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today.

The Indictment charges that the offenses occurred in Marion County, Illinois, in 2008. The maximum penalties that can be imposed for each count are: ten years’ incarceration or a $250,000 fine, or both; three years’ supervised release, and a $100 special assessment per count.

The Indictment alleges that the vehicles were stolen in other states but sold by Riley in Marion County.

An indictment is merely the method by which federal charges are lodged. A defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

The investigation has been conducted by the Illinois Secretary of State Police. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Stephen B. Clark.

Trial is set for June 13, 2011, in East St. Louis.
