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

On February 2, 2016, Clint D. Williams, 32, of DuQuoin, was sentenced for his involvement in a methamphetamine conspiracy, the Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, James L. Porter, announced today.

Williams, who had previously pled guilty to an indictment charging conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, was sentenced to 100 months in federal prison, to be followed by 3 years’ supervised release, and fined $350.00. The offense occurred between 2012 and September 2014, in Perry, Jackson, Randolph, Williamson, and Franklin Counties. Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that Williams was involved with others in the manufacture of methamphetamine. On February 20, 2014, Williams was caught manufacturing methamphetamine at a DuQuoin residence with an 11-month old child present. At sentencing, the district court found Williams responsible for the possession of approximately 88 grams of pseudoephedrine, which was possessed for the purpose of manufacturing methamphetamine. Six co-defendants have previously been sentenced for their roles in the methamphetamine conspiracy.

The investigation was conducted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Perry County Sheriff’s Office, Perry County Drug Task Force, Murphysboro Police Department, and DuQuoin Police Department. The Pinckneyville Police Department and Illinois State Police Methamphetamine Response Team assisted in the investigation.

The case was assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Amanda A. Robertson for prosecution.
