EDWARDSVILLE, IL (KTVI) – A couple from Carbondale, Illinois was sentenced last week for their involvement in a conspiracy to produce methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois Stephen Wigginton said Monday.

According to court documents, 54-year-old James Leming and 45-year-old Dawn Unterfer previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to manufacture meth. The duo admitted to buying pseudoephedrine products to use to create the illegal narcotic. These crimes occurred between 2010 and January 2014, in Jackson, Williamson, Union, and Franklin counties.

Leming and Unterfer were sentenced to 87 and 78 months in federal prison, respectively.

Seven co-defendants have already been sentenced for their role in the conspiracy.
