A Jacksonville man arrested last November after a large amount of methamphetamine was discovered in a traffic stop has been sentenced to nearly a decade in prison.

Twenty-five-year-old Kouri Woods was sentenced to eight years in the Illinois Department of Corrections Tuesday in Pike County Court for unlawful delivery of between 15 and 100 grams of meth. Woods pleaded guilty to that charge, and prosecutors dropped another Class X felony of meth trafficking.

Woods also received a three-year-period of Mandatory Supervised Release. He was given credit for 140 days in jail and fined $10,512.

The other man arrested in the November incident, 25-year-old Justin Rawlings, entered an open plea during a bench trial on Tuesday to meth trafficking. A sentencing hearing for Rawlings is set for June 6th.
