On November 1, 2016, Associate Judge William Workman accepted a fully negotiated plea sentencing Misty McKenzie to 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for the offense of Aggravated Unlawful Participation in Methamphetamine Manufacturing, a Class X Felony.
The conviction and sentence stem from a June 15, 2016 investigation by the Lincoln Police Department at 122 South Logan Street, Apt. #4, Lincoln, Illinois. Officers conducted a search of the apartment and discovered 211 grams of a substance containing methamphetamine along with other items associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Misty McKenzie pleaded guilty to participation in the manufacture of at least 100 grams of a substance containing methamphetamine and that the manufacture took place in a multi-unit dwelling. For the offense of Aggravated Unlawful Participation in Methamphetamine Manufacture, Associate Judge William Workman sentenced Misty McKenzie to 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. The law requires that McKenzie serve 75% of the 15 year prison sentence before becoming eligible for mandatory supervised release (formerly known as parole). Her current projected parole date is September 15, 2027.
