Illinois man sent back to prison on drug charges

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — An East St. Louis man who admitted violating his parole by selling heroin after his son’s murder has been ordered returned to federal prison.

A judge in East St. Louis sentenced 41-year-old Delano Perry to two years and nine months behind bars.

Authorities say the East St. Louis man was released from prison in March of last year after serving time for a 1998 conviction of distributing cocaine base.

The judge who sentenced Perry last week noted that Perry for a time was successfully abiding by terms of his parole. But the judge says in June Perry sold roughly 24 grams of heroin to a federal informant.

The judge says Perry had reverted to drug dealing partly to pay funeral expenses of his 20-year-old son, who was slain last year.
