A McHenry man, who is a convicted felon and was found with over 100 bags of heroin and fentanyl in Lakemoor, was sentenced Thursday to nine years in prison.
Cody Passfield, 31, of McHenry, was charged in May 2021 with manufacturing or delivering 15-100 grams of heroin and possession of 15-100 grams of heroin.
He was later additionally charged with manufacturing or delivering 15-100 grams of fentanyl and possession of 15-100 grams of fentanyl.
A criminal complaint said officers with the Lakemoor Police Department arrested Passfield around 10 a.m. on May 25, 2021.
Officers found Passfield in possession of a substance containing 15-100 grams of heroin.
McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Matthew Brodersen said in court documents that Passfield was found with 77 grams of heroin packed in 107 bags.
He also had $1,100 in cash and was on probation at the time of his arrest for a possession of heroin case where he pleaded guilty.
Passfield was previously convicted in a 2017 McHenry County case for possessing cocaine, Brodersen said.
Court records show Passfield pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of possession of 15-100 grams of heroin, a Class 1 felony.
Prosecutors dismissed his other charges in exchange for the plea.
McHenry County Judge James Cowlin approved the plea deal and sentenced Passfield to nine years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
The sentence will be served at 50% in accordance with truth-in-sentencing guidelines.
Passfield will receive 626 days of credit for time served awaiting his case.
Cowlin found that Passfield committed the offense as a result of addiction or abuse of a controlled substance and recommended his placement in a substance abuse program while in prison.
