Williamson County Man Pleads Guilty To Methamphetamine Conspiracy

On November 24, 2014, John S. Andrews, 30, of Marion, was sentenced for his involvement in a methamphetamine conspiracy, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today.

Andrews, who had previously pled guilty to a one-count indictment charging conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, was sentenced to 120 months in prison, 5 years of supervised release, and fined $200. The district court granted Andrews 23 months credit for time served on a related state case. The offense occurred between August 2012 and December 2012, in Jackson County. Evidence at the plea and sentence hearings established that Andrews and others obtained pseudoephedrine for use in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

The investigation was conducted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the Murphysboro Police Department.

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