A frequent heroin dealer in Oswego has been sentenced to nine-years in prison.
Kendall County State's Attorney Eric Weis said Ramonda K. Stevenson, 43, of South Holland pleaded guilty to unlawful delivery of a controlled substance in Kendall County court last month after police witnessed him selling heroin in Oswego on several occasions in the summer and fall of 2014.
Based upon the his extensive criminal history, Stevenson's offense carried enhanced sentencing penalties which resulted in the nine year sentence, Weis said. Stevenson's record includes four separate stints in prison for similar drug and weapons charges
“Heroin continues to be an issue which law enforcement continues to deal with on a regular basis. Individual dealers, such as Mr. Stevenson, helped perpetuate this by traveling from outside the county to sell this dangerous narcotic in Kendall County.”
Stevenson will be required to serve 3 years
supervised release after he serves his nine-year prison sentence, Weis said.
