Randolph County Man Sentenced For Methamphetamine Offense

Donald S. Boyce, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today that Christopher L. Dallas, 36, of Chester, was sentenced for a methamphetamine offense.

Dallas, who had previously pled guilty to a one-count indictment charging conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, was sentenced to 120 months in prison, to be followed by three years supervised release. Dallas was also fined $200.00. Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that Dallas was involved with others in the distribution of methamphetamine in the form of "ice." Ice is methamphetamine which has a purity level of at least 80%. At sentencing, the District Court found Dallas was responsible for the distribution of 115 grams of ice. The offense occurred between 2014 and June 2015 in Perry and Randolph Counties.

The investigation was conducted by the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Perry County Sheriff’s Office, Perry County Drug Task Force, Percy Police Department, Steeleville Police Department, Illinois State Police Methamphetamine Response Team, DuQuoin Police Department, Pinckneyville Police Department, and Drug Enforcement Administration. The Randolph and Perry County States Attorney’s Offices also assisted in the investigation.
