A Vandalia woman who plead guilty to injuring her infant son in February 2016 has received a sentence of 27 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. 25 year old Aubree Hammer appeared in Fayette County Court Thursday for sentencing following her open plea of guilty in October to one count of aggravated battery to a child under the age of 13 with great bodily harm or permanent disability. During the hearing, two local law enforcement officers and the nurse practitioner who was the first to treat the child victim as well as a grandmother of the victim in the case were called to testify on behalf of the state. Six videos that included interviews with Hammer as well as one that showed a re-enactment by Hammer of the incident that occurred were entered into court record as state’s evidence. Victim impact statements from family of the victim were heard as well as a statement in allocution from Hammer. Following testimony from the lone defense witness, a doctor who had evaluated Hammer, Judge Don Sheafor handed down the sentence in the case. Hammer has been sentenced to 27 years in the Department of Corrections and she will be required to serve 85%, or just under 23 years of that sentence and will also receive credit for time served of just over two years in the Fayette County Jail and will be required to pay court cost. Hammer will also be on mandatory supervised released for three years following her release from prison.
