Illinois man sentenced on drug trafficking charges

A 28-year-old Illinois man has been sentenced to four years in prison followed by two years of supervised release after pleading guilty to drug trafficking charges in Jackson County. Officers with the City of Carbondale Police Department took the man into custody in July 2016 after receiving a tip from Amtrak investigators. The man's brother had earlier been sentenced to four years of probation after admitting to possessing marijuana.

Changes in Illinois child support calculations

Most non-custodial parents living in Illinois understand their obligation to support their children financially. In situations where parents cannot agree on an acceptable support payment amount, it is up to the courts to calculate the noncustodial parent's financial contribution. State law has been changed to allow for a different method of calculating these payment amounts.

Impaired driving and its negative consequences

Illinois residents have certainly heard stories about drivers impaired after drinking alcohol or using marijuana. However, authorities say that there is a growing trend involving drivers who use heroin or similar types of substances. According to the 2014 National Survey of Drug Use and Health, 10 million people aged 12 and older admitted to driving while under the influence of illicit drugs such as heroin or meth.

Disabled parents and child support

When Illinois parents of young children divorce, the parent who does not have primary physical custody may be required to pay child support. Most parents take their financial responsibilities to their children seriously. However, sometimes life circumstances can make it difficult to pay child support. The circumstances include an illness or injury that makes it difficult to earn a living.
