RANDOLPH CO., Ill. - On October 31, 2017, Robert J. Smith, Jr., 48, Sparta, was sentenced to federal prison for a methamphetamine offense, Donald S. Boyce, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced yesterday afternoon.

Smith, who had previously pled guilty to a one-count superseding indictment charging conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, was sentenced to 188 months of imprisonment, three years of supervised release, and was fined $400.00. The superseding indictment alleged that the methamphetamine offense occurred between 2014 and September 2016, in Perry, Randolph, St. Clair, and Franklin counties. Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that Smith was involved with numerous other persons in the distribution of ice in southern Illinois.

Ice is methamphetamine which has a purity level of at least 80 percent.

At sentencing, the district court found that Smith was responsible for the distribution of approximately 7.9 kilograms of ice.

The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Perry County Sheriff’s Office, Percy Police Department, Steeleville Police Department, Illinois State Police, Sparta Police Department and Southern Illinois Drug Task Force. The Randolph County States Attorney’s Office also assisted in the investigation.
