Carrier Mills man sentenced to 18 years for drug charge

SALINE COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A Carrier Mills man has been sentenced to 18 years after being convicted of delivery of an uncontrolled substance near a church.

According to the state's attorney of Saline County, Anthony "Turtle" Miller, 34 of Carrier Mills was sentenced Thursday, June 23 in Saline County Circuit Court by Judge Walden E. Morris to 18 years in the Ill. Dept. of Corrections. This is after he was convicted by a Saline County Jury on April 8, 2011 of the offense of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1000 feet of the real property comprising any church.

On Sept. 8, 2009, a Saline Co. Grand Jury returned a True Bill of Indictment charging Miller with eh offense as a result of an undercover investigation. According to a release by the state's attorney in Saline County, a confidential source purchased cocaine from Miller.

The investigation was led by the Ill. State Police/southern Illinois Drug Task Force and the Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force.

Additional drug charges are pending against Miller, according to the state's attorney.

He says a Saline County Grand Jury is expected to convene in September 2011 to consider evidence pertaining to illegal activity in Saline County.
