JACKSON/PERRY COs., Ill. - On January 11, 2017, Charles W. Yearian, a/k/a “Chuckie,” 40, of Murphysboro, was sentenced to federal prison for methamphetamine offenses, Donald S. Boyce, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today.

Yearian, who had previously pled guilty to a second superseding indictment charging him with one count of conspiracy to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine and one count of possession of pseudoephedrine knowing that it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine, was sentenced to 144 months of imprisonment, 3 years of supervised release, and was fined $400.00.

Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that Yearian was involved with numerous other persons in the manufacture of methamphetamine and the distribution of ice in Jackson and Perry counties. Ice is methamphetamine which has a purity level of at least 80 percent.

On multiple occasions in December 2015 and January 2016, Yearian sold methamphetamine to a confidential source working for law enforcement. At sentencing, the District Court found that Yearian was responsible for the possession of 328.8 grams of pseudoephedrine and the distribution of 85.62 grams of ice. Four co-defendants have pled guilty and are awaiting sentencing in this case. Two co-defendants have pled not guilty and are awaiting a January 30, 2017, jury trial.

The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Murphysboro Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

The Union County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson County States Attorney’s Office, and DuQuoin Police
Department also assisted in the investigation.
