Meth conspiracy gets Annapolis woman nearly 16 years in prison
An Annapolis woman has been sentenced to almost 16 years in federal prison for her involvement in a methamphetamine conspiracy.

On March 7, Emma J. York, also known as Emma J. Melton, 36, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Benton on a one-count indictment charging conspiracy to manufacture meth, according to Stephen R. Wigginton, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois.

She was sentenced to 15 years and eight months in prison and eight years of supervised release. She also was fined $600.

The conspiracy reportedly occurred between July 2011 and Aug. 12 in Crawford, Jasper, Randolph and Jackson counties.

Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that York was involved with others in making the drug. During the conspiracy, York participated in numerous meth "cooks" and also obtained more than 98 grams of pseudoephedrine for the purpose of making meth.

York received an enhanced sentence based on her classification as a career offender.

This investigation was conducted by the Crawford, Jackson and Randolph county sheriff's departments, Robinson and Murphysboro police departments and Drug Enforcement Administration. The Montgomery County Sheriff's Department also assisted in the investigation.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda A. Robertson.
