YORKVILLE – An Aurora man has been sentenced to prison for 2018 drug delivery charges, according to the Kendall County State's Attorney's Office.
Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis said in a Tuesday, Jan. 14, news release that 23rd Circuit Chief Judge Robert Pilmer sentenced Christian A. Salgado, 25, of the 400 block of South Highland Avenue in Aurora, to six years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for unlawful delivery of a controlled substance during a Jan. 9 court hearing. The sentencing comes after Salgado pleaded guilty to the most serious delivery charge, which is a Class X felony, and agreed to the six years in prison, the release said.
Salgado will serve three years of mandatory supervised release after his six-year prison sentence, according to the release.
The release said Salgado made three separate drug deliveries with members of the Kendall County Cooperative Police Assistance Team, or C.P.A.T., in early 2018, with all three deliveries being for MDMA, or ecstasy. Salgado was charged with the multiple deliveries in June 2018.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney Frank S. Gorup. Salgado was represented by attorney Scott Kent.
