Jefferson County Man Sentenced To In Excess Of Thirteen Years In Federal Prison On Crack Cocaine Charges

A Jefferson County man was sentenced on April 17, 2014, to federal prison on crack cocaine charges, Stephen R. Wigginton, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today.

Andre T. Davis, 27, of Mt. Vernon, Illinois, was sentenced to 162 months in prison, to be followed by four years of supervised release, and fined $200. The Court sentenced Davis as a Career Offender due to Davis’ previous criminal history. Davis had previously pleaded guilty to a federal indictment charging that on May 18, 2012, in Jefferson County, Illinois, Davis knowingly and intentionally distributed crack cocaine.

The investigation in this case was conducted by the Joint Narcotics Unit of the Mt. Vernon Police Department and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.

The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney George Norwood.
