A Chicago man who delivered cocaine to undercover police officers in Plano was recently sentenced to state prison as part of a plea agreement.

Kendall County Judge Timothy McCann sentenced Exiquio Levya, 29, of the 3600 block of North Central Park Avenue, Chicago, to nine years in state prison for of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. In addition, Levya will have to serve three years of mandatory supervised release following his release from prison, according to Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis, who announced the agreement Wednesday, Jan. 3.

Weis said the charges stemmed from a monthlong investigation by the Kendall County Cooperative Police Assistance Team, or CPAT, where Levya delivered cocaine to an undercover police officer in Plano on “several occasions.”

“The drug sales were captured on audio recordings and helped to ensure a conviction and lengthy sentence in this case,” Weis said.

Weis said Leyva had multiple felony convictions dating back to 2010. Assistant State’s Attorney Frank Gorup prosecuted the case while Attorney Michael Petro represented Leyva, Weis said.
