Rinnell Mallory, 43, of the 500 block of Van Street, agreed to a 13½ year prison sentence in exchange for a guilty plea to unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a park, a Class X felony. Mallory sold heroin or arranged for heroin to be sold to undercover officers on at least six occasions during a 2013 police investigation.

Charges against two other co-defendants picked up in the same police investigation are pending. One is charged with five counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. The other is charged with one count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. The case was prosecuted by Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Kelly Orland.
