Pekin drug offender sentenced to more than a dozen years in federal prison
PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - A federal judge has sentenced a Pekin man to 12 years and seven months in prison for intending to deal methamphetamine.
At the time of his arrest in November of 2019, the U.S. Attorney’s office said Daniel W. Dawe, 48, was on parole after serving time in state prison for a 2012 robbery conviction.
While on parole, prosecutors said Dawe had several baggies containing a total of almost 17.6 grams of 100% pure ice methamphetamine. They said Dawe had been a passenger in a vehicle stopped for a traffic offense, and police searched him because of his criminal past.
Dawe pleaded guilty in June of this year to a federal charge of possession of methamphetamine with intend to deliver.
Prosecutors said Pekin Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration investigated the case.
