A new sentencing hearing date for a Vandalia woman charged with aggravated battery of a child resulting in permanent disability has still not been set following a status hearing on Tuesday in Fayette County Court. 25-yer old Aubree Hammer made an appearance in Fayette County Court with her attorney Patrick Schaufelberger on Tuesday for a status hearing in the matter after last week’s scheduled sentencing hearing was continued as the defense informed the court that they are still working on contacting a doctor, who had previously seen Hammer but had moved to California since then, to serve as a defense mitigation witness during a sentencing hearing. Judge Don Sheafor told Schaufelberger that he is to notify the State’s Attorney as soon as he is able to contact said doctor. In the meantime, a status hearing was set for next Tuesday, January 30 at 10am. The original sentencing for Hammer was scheduled for November after Hammer entered an open plea of guilty on October 3, 2017 to one count of aggravated battery to a child under the age of 13 with great bodily harm or permanent disability following the injuring of her at that time 3 ½ month old son in early 2016. The charge of aggravated battery to a child under the age of 13 with great bodily harm or permanent disability is a Class X Felony and it is punishable by 6-30 years in prison.
