DIXON – A Dixon man was sentenced to 6 years in prison Thursday, after pleading guilty in Lee County Court to two counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school.

Alax M. Farster, 36, was arrested Nov. 27, 2012, after police said he sold heroin on more than one occasion to an informant.

As part of the plea deal, four other charges against him were dropped.
