YORKVILLE — An Oswego man Wednesday was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to drug induced homicide.
Jose Mares, 39, of the 100 block of Dolores Street, pleaded guilty to drug induced homicide and unlawful delivery of a controlled substance before Kendall County Judge Timothy McCann.
Mares was charged after delivering an eventual lethal dose of heroin to Thomas Hallock in October 2009. Hallock ingested the drug and later died.
The Kendall County sheriff’s office investigated the incident, eventually getting a confession from Mares, prosecutors said.
“Both parties made horrible decisions that day,” Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis said.
“Mares will have to live with the fact that his actions in delivering heroin to Hallock ultimately led to Hallock’s death.”
Mares will be required to serve three years of mandatory supervised release after he serves his prison sentence, Weis said.
