Peru Man Faces Minimum 6 Years in Prison after Drug Plea

Posted by wlpo on October 27, 2016

A Peru man who was busted for selling drugs knows he’ll be going to prison, but he doesn’t yet know for how long.

Daniel Buster appeared in court Thursday to plead guilty to the charge of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance against him. Because of his criminal history, which includes 3 felony burglary convictions in LaSalle County, Buster faces decades behind bars.

For the charge he faces between 6 and 30 years in prison, which could jump to between 6 and 60 if he’s eligible for an extended term. In addition, he was allegedly selling a substance containing fentanyl, a painkiller 100 times stronger than morphine. Because of that, he will have an extra 3 years added to his sentence.

While Buster did plead guilty, a sentence was not part of the agreement. He’s due back in court for a sentencing hearing at a later date.
