Centralia Woman Sentenced for Meth Conspiracy
James L. Porter, Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today that Rachel L. Reeve, 24, of Centralia, Illinois, was sentenced today to 46 months in federal prison, 5 years’ supervised release to follow imprisonment, a $400 fine and a $200 special assessment. There is no parole in the federal system. Sentencing followed Reeve’s September 18, 2015, guilty plea to Conspiracy to Manufacture and Distribute Methamphetamine, and Possession of Pseudoephedrine Knowing It Would Be Used to Manufacture Methamphetamine.
According to court documents, from approximately December 2012, to February 21, 2014, in Marion, Clinton and Jefferson Counties, Reeve agreed to, and did, provide pills containing pseudoephedrine to others in exchange for cash, knowing they would be used to manufacture methamphetamine. Reeve wanted the cash to support her own drug habit.
Information leading to the conviction of Reeve was obtained in an investigation conducted by the FBI, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, and the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department, assisted by the Illinois State Police Methamphetamine Response Team, and the Centralia Police Department. The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Kit Morrissey.
