U.S. DISTRICT COURT, BENTON, Ill. - The daughter of former Harrisburg mayor Valerie Mitchell has been indicted by the feds on meth-associated charges.

Krystle R. Sands, 32, and Robert F. Humphrey, 46, both of Elkville, were indicted on August 23, 2017, in a two-count indictment charging methamphetamine violations, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois Donald S. Boyce announced today.

Sands and Humphrey are each charged with conspiracy to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine and conspiracy to possess pseudoephedrine knowing that it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine. The indictment alleges that the offenses occurred between January 2015 and May 2017, in Jackson, Williamson, and Saline counties.

Sands made her initial appearance in federal court on August 28, 2017. Humphrey made his initial appearance in federal court on September 4, 2017. Both Sands and Humphrey are being held without bond pending a November 6, 2017, jury trial.

The methamphetamine conspiracy carries a maximum penalty of ten years to life imprisonment followed by eight years of supervised release and an $8,000,000 fine. The pseudoephedrine conspiracy carries a maximum penalty of up to 20 years of imprisonment followed by three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.

The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and Elkville Police Department. The Southern Illinois Drug Task Force and Jackson County States Attorney’s Office also assisted in the investigation.
