Anna Man Charged with Inde­cent Solic­i­ta­tion of a Child


Union Coun­ty State’s Attor­ney Tyler R. Edmonds announced today that James P. Dou­blin (DOB 08-02-1965) of 408 Dewey Street in Anna has been charged with one (1) count of Inde­cent Solic­i­ta­tion of a Child, a Class 3 Felony.  Dou­blin is alleged to have solicit­ed a minor under the age of 13 to per­form an act of sex­u­al con­duct on April 16, 2011.  Dou­blin was arrest­ed this after­noon fol­low­ing an inves­ti­ga­tion by the Anna Police Depart­ment.  He is cur­rent­ly being held on $30,000 bond.


The Union Coun­ty State’s Attorney’s Office reminds the pub­lic that charges are not evi­dence of guilt.  A defen­dant is pre­sumed inno­cent and is enti­tled to a fair tri­al in which the gov­ern­ment has the bur­den of prov­ing guilt beyond a rea­son­able doubt.
