RANDOLPH/MONROE/ST. CLAIR COs., Ill. - On May 17, 2018, Derek L. Sumpter, aka “Doucher,” 31, of Oak Ridge, Missouri, was sentenced to federal prison for his role in a methamphetamine offense, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Donald S. Boyce, has announced.

Sumpter, who had previously pled guilty to a one-count second superseding indictment charging conspiracy to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine, was sentenced to 188 months of imprisonment to be followed by four years on supervised release. He was also fined $400.00.

The indictment alleged that the offense occurred between 2015 and April 2017, in Perry, Randolph, Monroe, and St. Clair counties. Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that Sumpter was involved with numerous other persons in the distribution of ice. Ice is methamphetamine which has a purity level of at least 80 percent.

At sentencing, the district court found that Sumpter was responsible for the distribution of over 423 grams of ice. Five co-defendants have already been sentenced to prison for their roles in the methamphetamine conspiracy. Four additional co-defendants have pled guilty and are awaiting sentencing.

The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Perry County Sheriff’s Office, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office Drug Tactical Unit, Metropolitan Enforcement Group of Southern Illinois, Chester Police Department, Coulterville Police Department, Belleville Police Department, Lenzburg Police Department, Perry County (Missouri) Sheriff’s Office, and Drug Enforcement Administration. The Randolph County States Attorney’s Office and the Monroe County State’s Attorney’s Office also assisted in the investigation.
