Williamson County Woman Sentenced for Federal Drug Violation

 

On September 7, 2016, Natasha C. Mann, 29, of Carterville, was sentenced for her role in a federal drug conspiracy, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Donald S. Boyce, announced today.

Mann, who had previously pled guilty to a one-count indictment charging conspiracy to distribute MDMA, was sentenced to 60 months imprisonment, 3 years supervised release, and was fined $400.00. MDMA is 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine, a controlled substance which is commonly referred to as ecstasy. Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that, between December 2015, and March 22, 2016, Mann was involved with others in the distribution of approximately 11,971 ecstasy tablets. The offense occurred in Williamson County.

The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Southern Illinois Enforcement Group, Department of Homeland Security, Drug Enforcement Administration, Marion Police Department, and U.S. Postal Inspection Service. The Illinois State Police and Williamson County States Attorney’s Office assisted in the investigation.
