Centralia Man Found Guilty of Possession With Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance

MARION COUNTY — A Marion County jury has found a 24-year-old Centralia man guilty of a felony charge of unlawful possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance.

D’Shawn Duncan was taken back into custody following the jury’s Tuesday verdict and will remain in the Marion County Jail pending sentencing March 26, on the Class 1 felony conviction.

Duncan was arrested on the charge in June 2016 after trying to sell heroin to a Marion County Sheriff’s Department investigator.

After less than two days of testimony, the jury took approximately 45 minutes to deliberate and return a guilty verdict in the case.

A Class 1 felony is generally punishable by between 4 and 15 years in prison but due to a previous conviction for burglary, Duncan is facing an enhanced sentence on the conviction.
