Anna Man Sen­tenced to Six Years for Metham­phet­a­mine Production

Union Coun­ty State’s Attor­ney Tyler R. Edmonds announced today that Dan­ny J. Cook (DOB 01/29/1964) of 120 Casey Street in Anna has been sen­tenced to six (6) years in the Illi­nois Depart­ment of Cor­rec­tions after plead­ing guilty to one (1) count of Unlaw­ful Par­tic­i­pa­tion in Metham­phet­a­mine Pro­duc­tion, a Class 1 Felony.  Cook, along with two oth­er indi­vid­u­als, was arrest­ed on July 9, 2013 at his res­i­dence fol­low­ing an inves­ti­ga­tion by the Union Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office.

The Union Coun­ty State’s Attorney’s Office reminds the pub­lic that charges are not evi­dence of guilt.  A defen­dant is pre­sumed inno­cent and is enti­tled to a fair tri­al in which the gov­ern­ment has the bur­den of prov­ing guilt beyond a rea­son­able doubt.
