Oglesby man faces Class X felony
An Oglesby man would face up to 30 years in prison if convicted of possessing more than 100 Ecstasy pills.
Casey J. Nagle, 25, of 351 E. Walnut St., Apt. 2 (also listed as a resident of rural Ottawa) was charged Tuesday with three felony drug counts after the Tri-County Drug Enforcement Narcotics Team (TRI-DENT) seized purported Ecstasy and cannabis as well as a semi-automatic pistol, TRI-DENT said in a press release.
TRI-DENT said agents, assisted by Oglesby police, conducted a compliance check of Nagle’s residence and recovered 106 pills, 31 grams of cannabis and a Jennings .22-caliber pistol.
Nagle is charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance (Ecstasy) with intent to deliver, a Class X felony carrying 6-30 years in prison with no possibility of probation. He also is charged with unlawful possession of cannabis with intent to deliver and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, both Class 3 felonies carrying 2-5 years, but with the possibility of probation.
Court dates are pending.

COMMENT: 30 years for 106 pills is just insane :thumbsdown:
Did get a chuckle out of the irony of it being a "class X" felony though.
