CLINTON — A Farmer City teen accused of shooting another teen in Farmer City last week remains jailed in lieu of posting $50,000.
Michael Cummins, 17, will be tried as an adult on a charge of aggravated battery with a firearm, a Class X felony. If convicted, he could face a possible sentence of six to 30 years in prison.
In court documents filed in DeWitt County, Cummins is accused of shooting a 17-year-old boy in the abdomen with a revolver on Wednesday.
The victim was transferred to Carle Hospital in Urbana. His condition was not available Monday, but authorities said his injury is not believed to be life-threatening.
Public defender Richard Goff was appointed to represent Cummins. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing April 24.
