Williamson County Man Sentenced on Methamphetamine Offenses


On February 5, 2018, Shaundale J. Johnson, a/k/a "Shug," 36, of Marion, was sentenced for methamphetamine violations, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Donald S. Boyce, announced today.

Johnson, who had previously pled guilty to a two-count indictment charging unlawful distribution of methamphetamine, was sentenced to 204 months of imprisonment and eight years of supervised release, and was fined $400.00. The offenses occurred on March 17, 2017, and March 20, 2017, in Williamson County. At sentencing, the district judge found that Johnson was responsible for the distribution of 59.5 grams of methamphetamine. Because Johnson had multiple prior felony drug trafficking convictions, he received an enhanced sentence based on his classification as a Career Offender.

The investigation was conducted by the Southern Illinois Enforcement Group and Drug Enforcement Administration. The Williamson County States Attorney’s Offices also assisted in the investigation.
