[October 02, 2014]  LINCOLN - On October 1, 2014, the Honorable William Workman, Associate Judge of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit sentenced Christopher L. Fulk to twenty (20) years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for the offense of Aggravated Unlawful Participation in Methamphetamine Manufacturing, a class X felony.

“The Lincoln Police Department in conjunction with the Illinois State Police conducted an investigation in April 2014 into the production of methamphetamine,” stated Jonathan Wright, Logan County State’s Attorney.

As a result of this investigation, Christopher Fulk was charged with five felony counts related to the production of methamphetamine and the possession of methamphetamine precursors and manufacturing materials.

On August 13, 2014, Christopher Fulk pled guilty to Aggravated Unlawful Participation of Methamphetamine Manufacturing and the case was set for a sentencing hearing. A class X felony has a sentencing range of six to thirty years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. In addition, the truth-in-sentencing law requires that Christopher Fulk serve 75% of the 20 year sentence before becoming eligible for mandatory supervised release (formerly known as parole).
