A Marion man will serve four years in the Illinois Department of Corrections  for methamphetamine possession, according to a news release from Williamson County State's Attorney Brandon Zanotti.

Carl J. Schaaff, 51, pleaded guilty Dec. 4 to one count of meth possession, a class 3 felony, and was sentenced last week. Schaaff will be under mandatory supervised release for one year following his release.

The release states that on Aug. 23, as part of a routine traffic stop, Schaaff was found in possession of less than five grams of methamphetamine.

The investigation was handled by the Marion Police Department. Assistant State’s Attorney Jerri Adams led the prosecution of this case.
