White County Man Sentenced to 13 Years for Meth Offenses

Bobby D. Morrill, Jr., 38, of Carmi, Illinois, has been sentenced to a term of 156 months (13 years) in prison for distributing highly pure methamphetamine on four occasions in 2015. Morrill had previously pled guilty on March 3, 2016, to distributing methamphetamine in Carmi on August 31st and September 8th, 9th, and 16th.

At the time of the four distributions, Morrill was on parole from the Illinois Department of Corrections after being sentenced in White County Circuit Court to 10 years in state prison in 2010 for possessing anhydrous ammonia with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. As a result, Morrill’s parole was revoked and he was returned to the Illinois Department of Corrections where he will remain until April 2017. He will begin serving his federal sentence after that.

In addition to the 156 month federal sentence, Morrill was ordered to pay $700 in fines and special assessments to the United States and was placed on a 3 year term of supervised release to follow his incarceration.

The case was investigated by the Carmi office of the Southern Illinois Drug Task Force and the Illinois State Police and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney James M. Cutchin.
