Man sentenced to 15 years for delivery of cocaine, cannabis
Online Staff Report
Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato announced Friday, July 25, that Bruce Castleberry, 35, was sentenced July 24 to 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections by the Judge Ronald White for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
Castleberry was also sentenced to three years in prision for possession of cannabis. As part of his sentence, he will also be on parole for three years.
The sentences will run concurrently.
Police arrested Castleberry in July 2013 after a search warrant turned up both cannabis and crack cocaine at a Rockford apartment. Officers also found more than 5 grams of cocaine, 70 grams of cannabis, plastic baggies, cell phones and weapons inside the apartment. The apartment was less than 1,000 feet from Keye Mahlquist Park in Rockford, which enhanced sentencing guidelines.
