An Ohio, Ill. woman was sentenced to five years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for a class 1 felony of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance Nov. 7.
Eva K. Hopson, 36, pled guilty in Bureau County court to the charges stemming from events that took place April 28.
In April, a confidential source working with the Tri-County Drug Enforcement Narcotics Team made arrangements to purchase narcotics from Hopson.
The confidential source and an agent for Tri-DENT, who was working in an undercover capacity, met with Hopson in the parking lot of a church in Van Orin.
Hopson delivered a substance that was confirmed by the Illinois State Crime Lab to contain fentanyl to the agent. This delivery took place within 500 feet of real property comprising a church.
Hopson was represented by Public Defender Ray Nolasco. The case was prosecuted by State’s Attorney Thomas Briddick and heard by Judge James Andreoni.
