March 15, 2017, Associate Judge William Workman accepted a fully
negotiated plea agreement which sentenced Skyler Dyer to 12 years in
the Illinois Department of Corrections for the offense of Unlawful
Methamphetamine Conspiracy, a Class X Felony.
The conviction and sentence stem from a January 14, 2016 investigation
by the Lincoln Police Department at 1006 7TH Street, Lincoln, Illinois.
Officers apprehended Donald E. Sturgeon outside that residence.
Initially, Donald E. Sturgeon fled from police throwing a vial
containing methamphetamine. Pursuant to a search incident to arrest,
officers discovered over 30 grams of pseudoephedrine (a substance used
to manufacture methamphetamine) on Sturgeonís person. Inside the
residence of 1006 7TH Street, officers located an active methamphetamine
lab in a room where Sturgeon was staying. As part of the investigation,
it was discovered that Skyler Dyer was purchasing pseudoephedrine, a
methamphetamine precursor, and providing it to Donald Sturgeon for the
manufacture of methamphetamine. Sturgeon was previously convicted of
possession and manufacture related offenses and sentenced to 45 years in
Skyler Dyerís sentence reflects that there are serious consequences not
only for manufacturing methamphetamine but also in conspiring to assist
in the manufacture of this dangerous and destructive drug.
