Joshua L. O’Gorman, 32 of Albion has been sentenced to 8 1/2 years in prison after pleading guilty to a Class-X felony charge of unlawful possession of methamphetamine with the intent to deliver. The sentence was imposed October 25 in Edwards County Circuit Court by Resident Judge Michael J. Valentine.

The case against O’Gorman was filed by Edwards County State’s Attorney Eric St. Ledger based upon an investigation carried out by Grayville City Police and the Edwards County Sheriff’s Department with the assistance from the Edwards County K-9 Zorro.

As part of the plea agreement, $654.00 in cash seized as part of the investigation was forfeited and applied to the $3,269 in court ordered fees and other costs which includes a $924 fine. Judge Valentine did give O’Gorman credit for 54 days he has spent in custody pending the disposition of his case. The judge also ordered O’Gorman to serve another three years of parole once he is released from prison.
