Turner was arrested and charged with Class X felony aggravated delivery of between 15 and 100 grams of methamphetamine from a protected structure. On Tuesday Turner pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of Class 1 felony delivery of less than 15 grams of methamphetamine.

Also, arrested at the Brownsville Road residence was 31-year-old Kassi B Williams. She was charged with Class 3 felony Possession of less than 5 grams of Methamphetamine and is next scheduled to appear in court in October.

Police said the arrests were the result of an ongoing investigation by the Mt Vernon Police Department /Jefferson County Sherriff’s Department Joint Narcotics Unit who had received a narcotics-related search warrant for the residence. During the search of the residence, detectives reportedly located quantities of methamphetamine.

Per the plea agreement, he will serve six years in prison with 189 days credit for time already served in the Jefferson County Jail.
