A Channahon man whose methamphetamine sales encroached into North Central Illinois was sentenced to 12 years in prison, the Illinois Attorney General’s Office said in a Friday news release.
Donald J. Rogers, 38, of Channahon, pleaded guilty to Class X methamphetamine delivery and was sentenced to 12 years. The Illinois Attorney General’s Office prosecuted Rogers for conspiracy to deliver following an investigation by the Tri-County Drug Enforcement Narcotics Team, whose member agencies include La Salle, Bureau and Putnam county law enforcement agencies.
“With the rise in methamphetamine in North Central Illinois, this arrest and guilty plea of a larger methamphetamine dealers helps in the effort to reduce the spread of this dangerous drug,” Tri-DENT Commander Josh Boedigheimer said.
Rogers entered his plea in Grundy County Circuit Court.
