Identical life sentence for disgraced ex-sheriff
BENTON (AP) – A former southern Illinois sheriff has been resentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison after his initial life sentence was tossed.
A judge Friday sentenced former Gallatin County Sheriff Raymond Martin to two life terms plus ten years in a drug-trafficking case where Martin allegedly plotted to have witnesses against him killed.
His original sentence was identical — two life terms plus ten years. But it was thrown out in August by a Chicago-based U.S. appeals court over how sentencing guidelines were applied.
