Salem man sentenced Tuesday in delivery of meth case

SALEM, IL — A 26-year-old Salem man was sentenced Tuesday in Marion County Court to eight years in prison after he pleaded guilty to the delivery of methamphetamine. John Phillips was charged in the 2020 case with Class 1 felony delivery of between 5 and 15 grams of meth.

Per his plea agreement, charges in two other cases were dismissed. The dismissed charges were from a 2020 case and a 2021 case, and included two counts Class 4 felony aggravated fleeing police, Class X delivery of between 15 and 100 grams of cocaine, Class 3 felony possession of less than 5 grams of meth and Class 4 felony possession of a controlled substance. In addition to his 8-year prison sentence, Phillips will have to serve one year parole following his release.

His Marion County sentence will run concurrently with a three-year prison term handed down earlier in Clinton County Court on a felony theft conviction.
