For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Illinois

On December 10, 2015, Krystle N. Statler, 28, of Johnston City, was sentenced for methamphetamine related offenses, the Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, James L. Porter, announced today.

Statler, who had previously pled guilty to a two-count indictment charging conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and possessing pseudoephedrine knowing that it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine, was sentenced to 54 months in federal prison, to be followed by 3 years’ supervised release, and fined $600.

The offenses occurred between 2012 and November 2014, in Williamson, Jackson, and Franklin Counties. Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that Statler was involved with others in obtaining pseudoephedrine and manufacturing methamphetamine. On April 17, 2013, Statler traveled to Carbondale with two other persons to obtain pseudoephedrine.

The investigation was conducted by the Southern Illinois Enforcement Group and the Marion Police Department. The case was assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Amanda A. Robertson for prosecution.
