LINCOLN — A Lincoln man was convicted last week by a Logan County jury of selling drugs last year.
Dwayne B. Hollins, 38, appeared in a two-day jury trial and was convicted of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.
Prosecutors said in October 2017 Hollins made multiple trips to Chicago to buy cocaine and heroin and then sold the drugs from his home in the 1300 block of Delavan Street, two blocks from Washington-Monroe Elementary School.
Associate Judge William Workman, who presided over the case, revoked Hollins' bond and set sentencing for Feb. 19. He faces six to 30 years, followed by three years of mandatory supervised release.
Prosecutors noted the felony conviction is Hollins' fifth in Illinois since 1998. He is now classified as a habitual criminal.
Hollins has been in the custody of the Logan County Sheriff's Department since his arrest May 18.
Logan County State's Attorney Jonathan Wright said he is grateful for the work of Lincoln police.
"The Logan County State's Attorney's Office would like to thank the Lincoln Police Department for their hard work and dedication to reducing crimes involving illegal narcotics. Prosecuting those who poison this community with illegal drugs remains a priority with the State's Attorney's Office and is taken extremely seriously," Wright said in a statement.
