Two St. Clair County men were handed prison terms for their roles in separate meth-related cases, State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly’s office announced Monday.
Edward M. Hart, 42, of Marissa will spend 13 years in prison after he pleaded guilty Friday to production of between 15 and 100 grams of methamphetamine in a home where a minor was present. The crime is a class X felony.
Hart was arrested in the case in December 2014 at a time when he already was on probation for possession of a small amount of meth, court records show.
In an unrelated case, 32-year-old Joshua R. Stanka of Dupo was sentenced to six years in prison after he pleaded guilty Thursday to a single charge of aggravated manufacturing of methamphetamine, a class 1 felony.
Stanka was arrested in November 2014.
