A Woodstock man was sentenced to seven years after pleading guilty to possessing and selling various drugs, including marijuana, ecstasy and cocaine.
Joe Joe D. Hymon, 28, of the 2100 block of Willow Brooke Drive in Woodstock, was indicted on two counts of unlawful possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance, possession of a firearm with a revoked FOID, unlawful possession with intent to deliver cannabis, unlawful delivery of cannabis, two counts of unlawful possession of cannabis, possession of a firearm without a FOID, possession of firearm ammunition without a FOID and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
The McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office reached a negotiated plea deal with Hymon, according to court records.
Hymon pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a controlled substance, a Class 1 felony, in exchange for his 11 other charges being dismissed.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office arrested Hymon in June 2019 after deputies conducted a traffic stop on Hymon’s Dodge Charger in Woodstock.
Deputies found the man in possession of 15-100 grams of cocaine, 15-200 pills of ecstasy, 100-500 grams of cannabis and THC cartridges.
They also found Hymon in possession of a .45 caliber Springfield XD-S pistol, a digital scale with a white powdery substance on it, and different types of firearm ammunition. Court records show police also seized $4,300 in cash.
McHenry County Circuit Judge Michael Coppedge approved the prosecutors’ plea deal with Hymon and sentenced him to seven years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
The case was investigated by members of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office and prosecuted by Brette Dunbar of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
