MARION, Ill. - On October 11, 2017, Ricky E. Shull, 51, Marion, was sentenced to federal prison for methamphetamine offenses, Donald S. Boyce, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today.

Shull, who had previously pled guilty to a two-count indictment charging conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and distribution of methamphetamine, was sentenced to 168 months of imprisonment, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release, and was fined $400.00. The indictment alleged that the offenses occurred between September 2016 and January 19, 2017, in
Williamson County.

Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that Shull was involved with other persons in the distribution of ice in southern Illinois. Ice is methamphetamine which has a purity level of at least 80 percent.

On January 19, 2017, Shull sold ice to a confidential source working for law enforcement. At sentencing, the district court found that Shull was responsible for the distribution of 436.45 grams of ice. Shull 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 Office also assisted in the investigation.
