On June 8, 2017, Marshall D. Rosenberger, 36, of Carbondale, was sentenced to federal prison for a methamphetamine offense, Donald S. Boyce, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today.

Rosenberger, who had previously pled guilty to a one-count indictment charging conspiracy to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine, was sentenced to 108 months of imprisonment, to be followed by three years of supervised release, and was fined $350.00. The indictment alleged the offense occurred between October 2015 and July 13, 2016, in Jackson and Williamson Counties. Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established Rosenberger was involved with Lucas Holland and other persons in the manufacture of methamphetamine and distribution of ice in southern Illinois. Ice is methamphetamine which has a purity level of at least 80%. At sentencing, the district court found Rosenberger was responsible for the possession or distribution of 42.53 grams of ice, 312 grams of a mixture containing methamphetamine, and 2.88 grams of pseudoephedrine. Lucas Holland was previously sentenced to 188 months of imprisonment for his role in the ice conspiracy.

The investigation was conducted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and Southern Illinois Enforcement Group. The Carbondale Police Department also assisted in the investigation.
