Naperville man gets jail time in 2014 drug bust
The fifth member of what prosecutors' say was a seven-member Naperville drug ring has been sentenced in connection with a 2014 case.
Kortney Patrick, 33, of the 500 block of Kiowa Drive, was sentenced this week to 75 days in jail and two years probation. The sentence was handed down by Judge Daniel Guerin after Patrick pleaded guilty to manufacture and delivery of more than 30 grams of cannabis.
Patrick and six others were charged on July 17, 2014, following a four-month investigation into their alleged drug ring that police said operated out of a Naperville apartment complex.
Those accused of dealing heroin, crack cocaine and cannabis included Bernice Coleman, 53; Jerome Powell, 61; and Tretepfone Pryor, 21, all of the 400 block of East Bailey Road in Naperville.
Also charged were Antonio Ervin, 25, of the 1300 block of South Glen Circle, Aurora; and Paris Miller, 19, of the 23000 block of West Winston Avenue, Plainfield. Mack Jones, 56, of the 1400 block of South 10th Avenue in Maywood, was charged with one count of calculated criminal drug conspiracy.
Powell was sentenced earlier this year to 12 years in prison. Ervin was sentenced to 10 years in prison last December. Pryor was sentenced last August to 66 days in jail. Miller was sentenced to six months in jail last November and ordered to perform community service.
Coleman and Jones remain in DuPage County jail awaiting trial on calculated criminal drug conspiracy charges and face between six and 30 years in prison.
