Two Percy Men Sentenced For Methamphetamine Conspiracy
On August 8, 2013, Michael J. Jaimet, 31, and Joshua D. Stacy, 27, both of Percy, IL, were sentenced in United States District Court in Benton on an indictment charging conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, Stephen R. Wigginton, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today.
Jaimet and Stacy had previously pled guilty to the methamphetamine offense, which occurred between January 2011, and January 2013, in Perry, Jackson, and Randolph Counties. Jaimet was sentenced to 151 months in prison, 3 years of supervised release and fined $300. Stacy was sentenced to 108 months in prison, 4 years of supervised release, and fined $200. Evidence at the plea hearings established that Jaimet and Stacy were involved with each other and others in the manufacture of methamphetamine. Jaimet and Stacy obtained pseudoephedrine to use to make methamphetamine and were involved in the methamphetamine cooks. In June 2012, Stacy was severely burned during a methamphetamine lab explosion. Three co-defendants have previously been sentenced for their role in the methamphetamine conspiracy. Seven co-defendants have pled guilty and are awaiting sentencing.
The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Randolph County Sheriff’s Office, Perry County Sheriff’s Office, Percy Police Department, Murphysboro Police Department, Sparta Police Department, and Drug Enforcement Administration.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Amanda A. Robertson.
