A Hamilton County court case that dates back 365 days has reached it’s conclusion. 31-year-old Aaron Sealy was originally arrested by McLeansboro Police on October 19th of 2021 for possession of a stolen Ford truck. He was in custody at the county sheriff’s department when he escaped his restraints, took a fire extinguisher off the wall and sprayed a deputy as well as a McLeansboro PD officer. Both officers fired their weapons and struck Sealy once in the abdomen subduing his escape attempt. After being taken to a hospital for treatment, he was placed back in custody on May 16th of this year.
Sealy is already serving a 3 year sentence out of Williamson County. His newest convictions on 3 separate class 2 felonies in Hamilton County have led to 6 year sentences which will be served concurrently after the 3 year sentence out of Williamson County. Sealy is currently jailed in the Menard Correctional Center.
