An Aurora man has been sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to delivering drugs.
Jeffery A. Alvarado, 28, of the 100 block of South Lake Street, Aurora, was sentenced Monday to eight years in the Illinois Department of Corrections after pleading guilty to one count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, according to Kane County State’s Attorney Eric Weis.
According to a press release from Weis’ office, Alvarado was arrested and charged in June 2012 after he and a co-defendant delivered cocaine to a member of the Kendall County Cooperative Police Assistance Team, a multi-jurisdiction team that takes on covert assignments.
“My office strives to hold every individual involved in an illegal narcotics transaction accountable including the dealer, the driver, and/or the enforcer,” Weis said in the press release. “Anyone who is complicit in dealing drugs in Kendall County will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
Alvarado will be required to serve two years of mandatory supervised release after he serves his eight-year prison sentence.
Judge Timothy McCann handed down the sentence. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney Frank S. Gorup.
