QUINCY — Donte Clausell is scheduled to go to trial in August on a charge of first-degree murder.
Clausell, 33, faces attempted first-degree murder and aggravated discharge of a firearm charges following a July 2020 drive-by shooting on Ill. 57. He was charged along with Stefan K. Crider III, who pleaded guilty in May to aggravated discharge of a firearm charge, which is a Class 2 Felony.
Crider received seven years in prison, with credit served for 660 days in the Adams County Jail. He will also receive two years of supervised release following the end of his sentence.
Clausell will have his pre-trial hearing on July 29 and then the trial is slated to start August 8.
Clausell was arrested one month following the shooting, where no one was injured. Clausell was in federal custody on a separate firearms-related charge, but he appeared in Adams County Circuit Court before Judge Holly Henze Tuesday morning.
