Area man gets 28 years for meth
A Richland County man has been sentenced to 28 years in federal prison on methamphetamine-related charges.

Marty Cody Stacy, 47, Calhoun, must also pay a $250 fine and serve eight years of supervised release following his imprisonment, according to Stephen R. Wigginton, United States attorney for the Southern District of Illinois.

"Let us hope that these extremely long, but well deserved, federal sentences can do something to persuade folks that meth is a scourge on Southern Illinois," Wigginton said. "I cannot understate the terrible effect that meth has on people."

Stacy was convicted of all five counts in an indictment. Count 1 charged that from August 2010 to about May 30, 2012, Stacy conspired with others in Richland County to manufacture more than 50 grams of meth.

The remaining counts charged that Stacy possessed pseudoephedrine, "knowing and having reasonable cause to believe" that it would be used to make meth on Oct. 11 and 25, 2011, and Feb. 8 and May 30, 2012.

The investigation was conducted by the Richland County Sheriff's Department. The case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney George Norwood.

In an unrelated matter, an Effingham County man has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison on gun-related charges, Wigginton said.

Ivan Joe Golladay, 33, Effingham, must also pay a $200 fine and serve three years of supervised release. He previously pleaded guilty to two counts in a federal indictment. Count 1 charged that on Nov. 9, 2012, Golladay, a convicted felon, possessed a .22-caliber revolver. Count 2 charged that four days later he possessed a 12-gauge shotgun.
