QUINCY — Judge Timothy Wessel has sentenced a Quincy man to 40 years in prison.
An Adams County jury found Tylar N. Richmiller, 27, guilty of two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault in April. He was also found guilty of four counts of criminal sexual assault.
Wessel handed down two ten-year sentences for the predatory criminal sexual assaults. Additionally, he would receive four five-year sentences for the criminal sexual assault charges. All terms are to be in service consecutively. Richmiller is receiving credit for 322 days in the Adams County Detention Center.
He could have received a sentence of up to 150 years, effectively pushing a life sentence in prison.
Richmiller’s first arrest was on July 22, 2021 at his residence at 1617 College. The arrest was a result of an investigation by Quincy police and Illinois DCFS investigators. The investigation was launched following allegations of sexual abuse against a Quincy-area juvenile.
During the investigation, a second possible victim came forth. An issuing of a second warrant from Adams County was for multiple counts of charges.
Richmiller’s arrest on the second warrant was on August 6 of the same year near his residence. The arrest was with the assistance of the Adams County Sheriff’s Department and the U.S. Marshals Task Force.
