A Quincy man pleads guilty and is sentenced on meth related charges Thursday in Adams County Circuit Court.

24 year old Emir Jasso-Diaz pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.

He was immediately sentenced to 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Jasso-Diaz was arrested early on the morning of November 19th following a traffic stop on I-172. A search of the vehicle revealed two packages containing more than 450 grams of meth.

Jasso-Diaz must serve 75 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.

Also, since Jasso-Diaz is not a U.S. citizen, he will be subject to deportation after he serves his sentence.

A second man arrested in the case, 29 year old James Courson of Quincy, awaits a June jury trial for meth delivery.
