A McHenry man who sold psychedelic mushrooms and other drugs to undercover cops on numerous occasions has been sentenced to five years in prison.
William L. Sicca III, 22, of the 2800 block of Henzada Avenue in McHenry, was indicted on five counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, two counts of unlawful possession with intent to deliver, six counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and one count of unlawful delivery of a look-alike substance.
A grand jury indictment alleged that Sicca sold hydrocodone, LSD and psilocybin, and had 30-500 grams of marijuana in his possession.
Prosecutors said in court documents that Sicca sold the drugs to law enforcement agents on five separate occasions in 2020.
One of the deals included 59 grams of psilocybin mushrooms on March 9 to the officers, who are part of the Illinois State Police North Central Narcotics Task Force.
Officers recovered additional narcotics from Sicca’s residence after executing a search warrant, prosecutors said.
Sicca pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, a Class 1 felony, in front of McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge.
Coppedge sentenced Sicca to five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. Sicca will have to pay $3,665 in court fines and fees.
The investigation was conducted by Inspector Palmer and members of the North Central Narcotics Task Force and was prosecuted by Brian Miller of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
