Harrisburg-area doper gets convicted in federal court
U.S. DISTRICT COURT, BENTON—There’s been a resolution to a case we’ve been following, originating in Saline and surrounding counties, for a federal court case involving a local woman and her meth dealings. From the federal court, this press release:
Sharon Sue Bauer, 43, of Harrisburg, Illinois, pled guilty on Thursday, August 2, 2012, in United States District Court in Benton to an indictment charging her with two counts of possessing pseudoephedrine with intent that it be used in the manufacture of methamphetamine, announced Stephen R. Wigginton, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois. The indictment, returned by a Federal Grand Jury on May 8, 2012, alleged that the offenses occurred in Saline County on April 12 and April 23, 2012.
Sentencing was set for November 19, 2012, at 1:30 p.m. at the United States District Courthouse in Benton. On each count, Bauer faces up to 20 years’ imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and 3 years of supervised release to follow her incarceration.
Bauer has been held without bond since her arrest in May and was again remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal to await sentencing.
The case was investigated by the Carmi office of the Southern Illinois Drug Task Force with the assistance of the Saline County Sheriff’s Department and the Harrisburg Police Department.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney James M. Cutchin.
Now…we’re wondering how much talking Suzy is going to do before she goes for that sentencing…and bear in mind, the feds aren’t going to give her any kind of a break; they’ve been busting peoples’ asses on this stuff lately, worse than ever before, handing out extremely harsh sentences in light of recent years’ sentencing when they had been inclined to give the minimum.
Keep your eyes out, folks….who knows who Sue knows, and knows what they’re doing or what they’ve done…for more about this case, pick up the next edition of the print version of Disclosure—the AUGUST 2012 SPECIAL EDITION—to see just what’s going on with Suzy’s case, or renew your subscriptions by clicking the PayPal link on the front page…do this before about 10 a.m. Monday morning, and you’ll get THIRTEEN papers guaranteed (and maybe more) in the coming year (last year everyone who subscribed before the annual August special edition got 14, because we did an extra paper in December, too) instead of 12.
