A Granite City man has been sentenced in federal court to 15 years in prison for possession of Methamphetamine. 31 year old Shawn M. Judd was sentenced this week to the 188 month jail term after pleading guilty to a two-count incident back in April.

During the prosecution, Judd admitted that he had possessed with intent to deliver "ice" in December 2016 and again in January 2017, in Madison County. At sentencing, the court found that Judd had intended to distribute over 500 grams of "ice" in Southern Illinois. Court records show that Judd had multiple prior convictions for drug-related offenses. The U.S. DEA conducted the investigation.
