A repeat felony offender was convicted this week of selling cocaine near an Elgin church in 2012 and now faces a minimum of six years in prison.
Ricky E. Frasure, 42, of the 0-99 block of North Jackson Street, Elgin, was found guilty of selling cocaine to undercover officers three times in February 2012.
Kane County Judge John Barsanti convicted Frasure in a bench trial Tuesday of two counts of delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a church, and three counts of delivery of a controlled substance.
Prosecutors said the drug buys were arranged over the phone with an undercover officer.
Frasure has been held at the Kane County jail for the last 538 days and his bond was revoked upon conviction.
According to Kane County court records, he previously spent time in prison for assault and aggravated kidnapping.
A sentencing date will be set July 11. Frasure faces between six and 30 years in prison.
