November 5, 2013

A Richland County man was sentenced on November 1, 2013, to twenty eight years in federal prison on methamphetamine related charges, Stephen R. Wigginton, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today.

“Let us hope that these extremely long, but well deserved, federal sentences can do something to persuade folks that meth is a scourge on Southern Illinois. I cannot understate the terrible effect that meth has on people.” said United States Attorney Wigginton.

Marty Cody Stacy, 47, of Calhoun, IL, was sentenced to 336 months in prison (28 years), eight years of supervised release following his imprisonment, and fined $250. Stacy was convicted following a trial of all five counts in an Indictment. Count 1 charged that from August 2010, to on or about May 30, 2012, in Richland County, Stacy conspired with others known and unknown to the grand jury to manufacture more than 50 grams of methamphetamine. Counts 2-5 charged that Stacy possessed pseudoephedrine, knowing and having reasonable cause to believe that the pseudoephedrine would be used to manufacture methamphetamine on the dates of May 30, 2012 (Count 2), February 8, 2012 (Count 3), October 25, 2011 (Count 4), and October 11, 2011 (Count 5).
