Kinmundy Man Sentenced For Cannabis Delivery Charge

(SALEM, IL) — A 51-year-old Kinmundy man was sentenced Tuesday in Marion County Court to 5-years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, after he pleaded guilty to manufacture with the intent to deliver cannabis. Wally West was charged in 2014 with Class 2 felony possession/use of a firearm by a felon on parole, as well as Class 3 felony manufacture with the intent to deliver between 30-500 grams of cannabis. He pleaded guilty Tuesday to the lesser Class 3 charge in exchange for the more serious Class 2 charge being dismissed. Separate cases against West charging Class 2 delivery of less than 5-grams of meth, Class 3 felony possession of less than 5-grams of meth, Class 4 obstruction, and Class 3 production of between 20-50 cannabis plants were also dismissed as part of the plea agreement. In addition to his prison sentence, West will have to serve one year mandatory supervised release, also known as parole, and pay more than $4,000 in fines, fees and court costs.
