Union County Man convicted for resisting arrest, aggravated assault

A Union County Jury has found an Anna man guilty on charges of Obstructing a Peace Officer, Resisting Arrest, Aggravated Assault, and Escape.

The charges stem from a July 2015 incident in which Roderick Hileman was approached by police in the parking lot of an Anna business.

According to prosecutors, Hileman pulled away from the officer as he was being arrested and fled on foot. He was later arrested after a short foot pursuit.

Hileman will be sentenced on November 30. He faces up to 5 years in prison.
