[August 24, 2017]  On August 22, 2017, Associate Judge William Workman accepted a fully negotiated plea agreement and sentenced Loren T. Helton to 8 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for Unlawful Delivery of a Controlled Substance.

The investigation was conducted by Lincoln Police using a Confidential Informant. The Confidential Informant made controlled purchases of cocaine from Loren Helton at his residence of 523 N. Adams Street in Lincoln. The amount of each purchase of cocaine was less than 5 grams of cocaine - which is a class 3 felony. Loren Heltonís residence, however, is within 1,000 feet of a public park, which elevates the offense to a class 2 felony.
