Two men were sentenced to time in the State Penitentiary

Two men were sentenced to time in the State Penitentiary on drug charges Tuesday in Lake County Circuit Court.

 23 year old Mason Shoenrock had earlier pleaded guilty to one count each of possession and ingestion of a controlled substance. Tuesday, Circuit Court Judge Patrick Pardy sentenced Shoenrock to serve 4 years in the State Penitentiary on each charge. The judge suspended all but three years of the sentence, based on several conditions. Those include that Shoenrock pay all fines and costs owed, and obey all laws. 

Also Tuesday, 38 year old Justin Walker was sentenced to 4 years after pleading guilty to one charge of Possession of a controlled substance. As a result of the plea agreement, several other charges against Walker were dismissed. Judge Pardy suspended 3 years of the sentence, and gave Walker credit for 133 days served.
