A Chicago man who sold less than two grams of cocaine to a confidential informant in McHenry County was sentenced to five years in prison, court records show.
Donathon D. Williams, 32, of Chicago, was charged in August 2020 with manufacturing or delivering 1-15 grams of cocaine, a Class 1 felony, and possession of cocaine under 15 grams, a Class 4 felony.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court said Williams delivered less than 15 grams of cocaine in McHenry County on March 3, 2020.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Police Narcotics Task Force had been conducting an undercover investigation.
Prosecutors said Williams sold the cocaine to a confidential informant.
Williams obtained $200 from the informant from the sale, court documents show.
The cocaine weighed approximately 1.97 grams, prosecutors said.
A warrant was issued for Williams and he was taken into custody in November 2020.
Williams was released from the McHenry County Jail after someone posted 10% of his $100,000 bond in February 2021.
A grand jury indictment said Williams is a convicted felon and was convicted in 2014 of manufacturing or delivering a controlled substance in Cook County.
Court records show Williams entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office last week.
He pleaded guilty to manufacturing or delivering 1-15 grams of cocaine, a Class 1 felony, and his second charge was dismissed.
McHenry County Judge Tiffany Davis approved the plea and sentenced Williams to five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
The sentence will be served at 50% and Williams will receive 230 days of credit for time already served awaiting trial.
