A Franklin man has been sentenced to 6 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for possession of meth with intent to deliver and unlawful delivery of meth. 27-year-old Ronald Fisher of Franklin was sentenced by Judge Brad Paisley on July 5th. Fisher pleads guilty to one count of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, and one count of unlawful delivery of methamphetamine.
Fisher was most recently charged in December of 2021 with meth delivery after he sold meth to an undercover source of the Taylorville Police Department. The meth sale took place in the parking lot of the Taylorville Walmart and he has remained in custody ever since. Both charges are Class 2 felonies which are probation eligible and have a sentencing range of 3-7 years in the IDOC.
This is Ronald Fisher’s second sentence in the Illinois Department of Corrections. He previously served an 18-month sentence for a theft-related offense in 2017.
