Oswego man gets prison term for selling heroin

Updated: March 6, 2013 6:19AM

YORKVILLE — A 23-year-old Oswego man was sentenced last week to an eight-year prison term for selling heroin to undercover police.

Kevin R. Lockwood, of the 200 block of Parkside, received the sentence for selling heroin to members of the Kendall County Cooperative Police Assistance Team, or CPAT, according to Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis.

The sale took place near Parkview Park. Weis said the arrest was part of ongoing work by CPAT involving the heroin trade.

“Their work continues to send a message that selling heroin in Kendall County will not be tolerated, and will hopefully act as a deterrent to others who would contemplate committing the same offense,” Weis said.

Lockwood’s brother, Mark Lockwood, is already serving time in Sheridan Correctional Center for selling heroin. He was sentenced to six years in prison beginning in November 2011. The earliest he is eligible for parole is February 2014.

Kevin Lockwood will be required to serve three years of mandatory supervised release after he serves his eight-year prison sentence.
