MT. VERNON, IL — A 59-year-old Belle Rive man was sentenced last week to 13 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections after he pleaded guilty earlier this month in Jefferson County Court to delivery of methamphetamine. Bradley Gammon failed to appear in court last summer in both Jefferson and Wayne county courts.
Gammon was ultimately located in Hickman, Kentucky, and was arrested on a no bond, nationwide warrant out of Wayne County for failing to appear on numerous felony charges. He was also wanted out of Jefferson County for failing to appear for a July jury trial on a Class X felony charge of delivery of methamphetamine. Gammon was free on $10,000 cash bond in the 2020 Jefferson County case when arrested on the Wayne County charges. He was subsequently released from Wayne County custody after posting $5,000 cash bond on charges of driving while license revoked and aggravated fleeing police. Gammon was on parole from the Illinois Department of Corrections at the time of a traffic stop in Mt. Vernon that led to his arrest on the meth delivery charge.
He will serve the latest 13-year sentence out of Jefferson County concurrently with a 13-year sentence handed down earlier in the Wayne County case.
