Local activist Bill Spencer has been sentenced to 12 months probation and 25 hours of community service following sentencing for a 2014 incident at the DeWitt County building, which lead to charges of aggravated battery.
Monday, Judge Roger Webber sentenced the 61-year old president of WATCH Clinton Landfill in connection to an incident that followed a September 2014 DeWitt County Board meeting.
Spencer was accused of shoving DeWitt County Republican Party President Dustin Peterson after a County Board meeting. Peterson did not retaliate and did not press charges, but because the incident was on county property, Spencer was eventually charged and convicted in a jury trial in May.
Spencer was also fined $500.
