Gallatin County Woman Pleads Gulty To Conspiring To Manufacture Methamphetamine

October 24, 2013

Angela Seavers, 35, of Ridgeway, Illinois, pled guilty today in United States District Court in Benton to an indictment charging her with conspiring with others to manufacture methamphetamine, announced Stephen R. Wigginton, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois. The indictment, returned by a Federal Grand Jury on May 9th, alleged that the conspiracy existed between February 2012 and March 13, 2013, in Gallatin County.

Sentencing was set for February 7, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. at the United States District Courthouse in Benton. At that time, Seavers faces up to 20 years’ imprisonment, a $1 million fine, and 3 years of supervised release to follow her incarceration.

Seavers has been held in the custody of the United States Marshal since her bond was revoked in September. She was again remanded to the custody of the Marshal to await sentencing.

The case was investigated by the Carmi office of the Southern Illinois Drug Task Force and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney James M. Cutchin.
