A Cairo man on Friday was sentenced to serve 20 years in state prison on Class X felony charges that stemmed from a traffic stop last summer in which he was found to have a loaded handgun, cannabis and another controlled substance.
According to a news release from Union County State's Attorney Tyler Edmonds, 38-year-old Ronald Andrew Hill was found guilty of two counts of armed violence and one count of armed habitual criminal, all Class X felonies, following a three-day jury trial in March.
In addition to his 20-year prison sentence, he will serve three years of mandatory supervised release.
According to the release, Hill was arrested by Anna Police after an August 2018 traffic stop in which he was found to have a loaded gun, cannabis and another controlled substance.
