Chicago – Attorney General Kwame Raoul announced a Rockford, Illinois man pleaded guilty and was sentenced to prison for selling methamphetamine.

Delano Albert, 35, was sentenced to 12 years in prison on Monday by Ogle County Circuit Court Judge John C. Redington after he pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful delivery of methamphetamine, a Class X felony. 

“Illicit drug sales have a destabilizing effect on neighborhoods and often fuel an increase in other forms of criminal activity,” Raoul said. “I will continue to collaborate with federal agencies and local law enforcement to combat trafficking and hold perpetrators accountable.”

According to Raoul, Albert sold methamphetamine to undercover agents with the Illinois State Police’s Blackhawk Area Task Force.

“This sentencing means another person found guilty of poisoning our communities with dangerous meth is off the streets,” said ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly. “The dedicated work of the Illinois State Police’s Blackhawk Area Task Force, along with prosecution by the Illinois Attorney General, is making a difference and saving lives.”

Bureau Chief Gregg Gansmann handled the case for Raoul’s Statewide Grand Jury Bureau, which is authorized by Illinois statute to prosecute multi-county cases involving drugs, guns or organized retail crime. Working regularly with state and federal law enforcement agencies, the bureau focuses on complex, often large-scale, organized criminal activity.
