COBDEN, IL (KFVS) -

A Cobden, Illinois man was sentenced to prison and charged with delivering methamphetamine.

The Union County State's Attorney Tyler R. Edmonds announced on Thursday, Jan. 11 that Marin F Amesquita was sentenced to three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

He was sentenced on one count of unlawful delivery of methamphetamine, class 2 felony. 

Amesquita will serve a two year period of mandatory supervised release. He was arrested in October of 2017 after the Illinois State Police-Southern Illinois Drug Task Force conducted an investigation.

He was arrested and placed on probation in March of 2016 in this incident after an investigation by the Cobden Police. 

Probation was revoked based on the new offense.
