Marion man pleads guilty to meth making charges | Crime
MARION, IL (KFVS) - The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois Stephen R. Wigginton announced Tuesday that a Marion man pleaded guilty to a federal indictment charging conspiracy to make meth.
Wigginton says on Nov. 19, Jason S. Thorne, 32, pleaded guilty to a one-count indictment. He says the incident happened between 2009 and 2011 in Williamson County.
According to Wigginton it was established during the plea hearing that Thorne was involved with others in the making of meth. He says Thorne supplied pseudoephedrine pills to others to use in the making of meth.
The offense carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison, a fine of not more than $1 million and a term of supervised release of at least three years.
The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, Willamson County Sheriff's Office, Marion Police Department, Murphysboro Police Department and Drug Enforcement Administration.
The case is assigned to Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda A. Robertson for prosecution.
