Centralia Man Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison on Two Sex Assault Charges

April 28, 2017

A 34-year-old Centralia man has been sentenced to a total of 20 years in prison on two sexual assault charges.

James Evilsizer of South Cherry Street admitted to a Class X felony charge of predatory criminal sexual assault to a child under the age of 13. He also pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal sexual assault to a person under the age of 18. Both were relatives.

Evilsizer was sentenced to ten years in prison on each charge, with the time to be served consecutively. He will have to serve 85-percent of the sentence and be placed on mandatory supervised release for three years to life. Evilsizer was also given credit for 234 days serve in jail. The charges claim the sexual assaults took place in 2016.

As part of the plea, three other counts were dropped, including a second predatory criminal sexual assault charge and two aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges.

The negotiations were completed Wednesday night, just before the scheduled start of his bench trial on Thursday.

Evilsizer was arrested in August of last year for the charges that also involved a third relative.
