Christopher Garbett

A 30-year-old Centralia man has been arrested for predatory criminal sexual assault of a child.

Christopher Garbett of Greenview Road was arrested Friday following an investigation by Marion County Sheriff’s Investigators and the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.  

Sheriff’s investigators say an investigation began after a family member filed a complaint after the girl disclosed the sexual acts Garbett was allegedly committing against her.   The acts allegedly occurred on multiple occassions earlier this year.   Garbett was taken into custody at his home after the girl and others were interviewed about the alleged activity. 

The sheriff’s department seized a computer from Garbett’s home as evidence.  They say the investigation is continuing and Garbett could face additional charges.    Investigators do not believe there was more than one victim.  

Garbett is being held in the Marion County Jail pending the filing of formal charges.
