A Huntley man was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Thursday after police seized $700,000 worth of drugs including 295 pounds of marijuana.
The McHenry State’s Attorney’s Office announced on Tuesday that Nicholas Domino, 48, of Huntley, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of possession of 11 pounds of cannabis, which is a class X felony.
McHenry State’s Attorney Patrick D. Kenneally said that Domino was sentenced to 10 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections on Thursday.
Police raided Domino’s home in Huntley in June of 2015 and found 295 pounds of marijuana, thousands of dollars in cash, luxury cars, at least 60 ecstasy pills, 500 prescription painkillers and 25 grams of cocaine.
Domino’s other charges against him were dropped in the plea deal. His wife, Rocio Domino, 40, is facing charges in connection with the case as well. She is due in court next on March 22.
The arrests came following an eight-month investigation by local and federal authorities.
