La Salle County drug convict given clemency

Posted by wlpo on April 7, 2012

Under a year from his projected parole date, a man convicted of drug dealing in La Salle County is catching a break courtesy of the governor.

Governor Pat Quinn granted clemency to 52 inmates including 59-year old Guadalupe Lopez.  Lopez was sentenced to 42 years in prison in 1992 for drug trafficking.  He and another man were caught with several pounds of marijuana and cocaine in La Salle County.

Governor Quinn is letting Lopez out from the Dixon Correctional Center because of a health issue.
