Salem Man Sentenced on Methamphetamine Charges


Stephen R. Wigginton, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today that Jeffrey A. Kirkman, 29, of Salem, Illinois, was sentenced today to 54 months in federal prison, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release, a $750 fine and a $300 special assessment. Sentencing followed a guilty plea in April 2014 to all charges against Kirkman brought in an indictment returned by a Federal Grand Jury in December 2014. Kirkman was sentenced for two counts of Distribution of Methamphetamine and one count of Possession of a Listed Chemical (Pseudoephedrine) Knowing or Having Reason to Know It Would Be Used to Manufacture Methamphetamine. The offenses occurred in Marion County, Illinois.

Information leading to the charges against Kirkman was obtained in an investigation conducted by the FBI, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, and the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department. The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Kit Morrissey.
