Jihad sentenced for beating at Southern Illinois University

Lone jihad syndrome.

“Milwaukee man sentenced for beating at SIU” By The Southern, November 8, 2013

Jihad Williamson, 19, of Milwaukee was sentenced to two years in state prison for aggravated battery, a class 3 felony, and one year for mob action, a class 4 felony, Jackson County State’s Attorney Mike Carr announced Friday.

The sentences will run concurrently, and a one-year period of mandatory supervised release will follow.

On April 21, Jihad Williamson and Gregory McElrath beat a victim, an SIU student, in the foyer of University Hall on the SIU campus. After fleeing, SIU police officers located both men shortly thereafter based on descriptions from witnesses. The incident was captured on multiple video surveillance cameras.

Neither defendant was an SIU student at the time.
