Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis announced that Miguel Ortega-Uribe (dob: 05/07/1994, 212 Keck Ave) of Aurora, Illinois was sentenced to six years in the Illinois Department of Corrections by Judge Robert Pilmer for Unlawful Delivery of a Controlled Substance as part of a negotiated plea agreement.
According to Weis, Ortega-Uribe was arrested in December of 2018 after a month-long investigation by the Kendall County Cooperative Police Assistance Team (CPAT). During the investigation, Ortega-Uribe delivered over 25 grams of cocaine to an undercover agent outside a business in Oswego.
Ortega-Uribe was arrested and taken into custody without incident. The court case against Ortega-Uribe was continued multiple times due in part to the pandemic and resulting limited court proceedings.
Weis commended the work of CPAT in taking yet another drug dealer off the streets of Kendall County.
“It is important to remember the devastating impact that drugs, like cocaine, have on our community. Some argue that we shouldn’t be so tough on drug dealers. I, however, having seen firsthand the harm caused by these criminals, pledge to continue to aggressively prosecute drug dealers with the goal of reducing the negative impact they can have in our great county.”
The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorney Frank Gorup, and Mr. Ortega-Uribe was defended by Liam Dixon.
