Carbondale man sentenced to 7 years on drug charges

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

A Carbondale, Illinois man pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance on Thursday, January 28.

According to Jackson County State's Attorney Michael C. Carr, over a period of time from June 13, 2014 to July 14, 2014, Carbondale police and the DEA conducted a total of three controlled drug purchases with a confidential source from Anthony Pugh.

Pugh sold the confidential source crack cocaine and heroin. He was arrested on August 20, 2014.

On Oct. 28, 2014, the state's attorney's office charged him with three counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

On Jan. 28, 2016 he pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and the third was dismissed.

Pugh was sentenced to seven years in the Illinois Department of Corrections on both counts, to run concurrently.

According to Carr, the state also agreed to recommend Pugh be placed in the IDOC's Impact Incarceration program, or "boot camp."

The investigation was conducted by the Carbondale Police Department with the assistance of the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency. Assistant State's Attorneys Patrick Brewster and Mark Hamrock were responsible for the prosecution of the case.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
