PEORIA - A central Illinois man who was convicted of shooting a woman at a house party in April 2014 has been sentenced to 19 years in prison.

Authorities say Adrian Jackson, 21, was sentenced last week.  Jackson will be required to serve at least 85 percent of the 19-year sentence, and will receive credit for approximately eight months that he's already spent in custody.

Prosecutors say that Jackson got into an argument at the party, and was being dragged out of the house with shots were fired.  Authorities say an officer found a woman, Shalonna Robinson, leaning against a door with a single wound to her chest.

According to Jackson, people at the house were trying to rob him, and that he was fighting back.  However, prosecutors say everyone but Jackson stayed that the scene of the shooting, which they say was proof of his guilt.
