MADIGAN: TWO MEN SENTENCED TO 21 YEARS FOR DELIVERING KILO OF HEROIN IN DEKALB COUNTY
Chicago – Attorney General Lisa Madigan today secured guilty pleas from two former Chicago men for delivering nearly one kilogram of heroin to undercover police officers at a DeKalb County Oasis along Interstate 88 in October 2007.
"This prosecution was the result of successful teamwork between my office and state and federal law enforcement agencies," Madigan said. "We are committed to continuing these coordinated efforts to fight drug dealing in Illinois."
Jose Guadalupe Reza-Rubio, 37, and Juan Carlos Sanchez, 37, both pled guilty to delivery of a controlled substance, a Class X felony. Judge Kurt Klein sentenced each to 21 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
In October 2007, Reza-Rubio and Sanchez were arrested at an I-88 rest stop after delivering nearly a kilogram of heroin to an Illinois State Police (ISP) undercover agent.
The Illinois State Police Blackhawk Area Task Force and the U.S. Department of Justice's Drug Enforcement Agency handled the investigation. Bureau Chief John F. Kezdy and Assistant Attorney General Grant T. Swinger handled the case for Madigan's Statewide Grand Jury Bureau.
