Altamont Man Sentenced in Methamphetamine Conspiracy

Wigginton, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today that Travis Cole Maxfield, 28, of Altamont, Illinois, was sentenced today to 188 months in federal prison, to be followed by four years of supervised release, a $500 fine and a $500 special assessment. Sentencing followed a guilty plea in February 2014 to all charges against him in an indictment returned by a Federal Grand Jury in November 2014. All offenses relate to the production and distribution of methamphetamine.
Specifically, Maxfield was sentenced for Conspiracy to Manufacture and Distribute Methamphetamine from October 2013 through May 2014 in St. Clair, Clinton, and Marion Counties (Count 1); Manufacture of Methamphetamine on February 26, 2014, in St. Clair County (Count 2); Distribution of Methamphetamine on March 5, 2014, in Marion County (Count 3); Possession of a Listed Chemical (Pseudoephedrine) Knowing or Having Reason to Know that It Would Be Used to Manufacture Methamphetamine in St. Clair County (Counts 9 and 10).
Information leading to the charges against Maxfield was obtained in an investigation conducted by the FBI, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, and the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department, assisted by the Illinois State Police Methamphetamine Response Team. The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Kit Morrissey.
