Supervised release for former Kankakee County Board member and Pembroke Township Supervisor Larry Dean Gibbs was revoked at a hearing on Friday (Oct. 2, 2015), before Chief U.S. District Judge James E. Shadid in Peoria. The 54-year-old Gibbs was sentenced to serve nine months in federal prison after pleading guilty to violating terms of his supervised release.
Judge Shadid ordered that Gibbs report to the federal Bureau of Prisons on Nov. 2, 2015, to begin serving the sentence.
Gibbs was serving a one-year term of supervised release following completion of his prison sentence for filing a false income tax return when a petition to revoke his supervised release was filed on June 4, 2015. Gibbs was sentenced on May 8, 2013, to 18 months in federal prison and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $66,282 to the IRS, after pleading guilty to filing a false tax return for the 2005 tax year.
During the court hearing on Oct. 2, Gibbs admitted that he violated his supervised release when he traveled to Minnesota on May 22, 2015, without the prior permission of his probation officer, and that he failed to report that he had been arrested for various traffic violations in Woodbury, Minn.
On June 3, 2015, Gibbs filed a document in U.S. District Court in Urbana to advise the court that Larry Dean Gibbs was "deceased and cannot speak, or appear." The notice further stated that "further information must be referred to Minister Mulumbua Humraukn El Taikaem Bey, Executor." In a document filed in Kankakee County Circuit Court on Apr. 30, 2015, an order for Change of Name was entered by Judge Ronald Gerts to change Gibbs' name from Larry Dean Gibbs to Mulumbua Humraukn El, Taikaem Bey.
