On July 13, 2012, the Court held a Final Hearing on Revocation of Supervised Release as to Offender Emire Long. The Court imposed a sentence of 24 months imprisonment, to run consecutive to any sentence that may be imposed in State of Illinois v. Emire Long , Case No. 2010-CM-756, Circuit Court of Sangamon County, Illinois.
