A Carbondale man was sentenced Wednesday for selling a combination of heroin and fentanyl.
In a news release from Jackson County State’s Attorney Michael Carr said Kenneth W. Neal, 34, of Carbondale, was sentenced to eight years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for “delivering a combination of heroin and fentanyl to a confidential source working with the Carbondale Police Department” on Sept. 13, 2016.
The offense of delivery of a controlled substance is typically considered a Class 2 felony, but the release said because of his prior record — Neal pleaded guilty in 2006 to possession of a controlled substance — he was treated as a Class X offender.
After release, the media report said he will serve three years of mandatory supervision.
