Mt. Vernon Man Gets 10 Years, for Meth Delivery Charges

A Mt. Vernon man was sentenced to 10 years in prison, after pleading guilty in Jefferson County court to methamphetamine delivery charges.  37-year-old James Lockwood plead guilty to a Class X felony charge of delivery of between 15 to 100 grams of meth, in exchange for his Class 4 felony charge for possession of a controlled substance being dismissed.  Mt. Vernon Police arrest Lockwood back in 2018, after he was stopped in a convenience store parking lot for reportedly not having a valid driver’s license.  According to police, they saw him drive to the Huck’s Convenience Store in Mt. Vernon and park, when the officer knew that he did not have a valid license.  He was then taken into custody for driving while having a revoked license, which led to an investigation, where they recovered over 30 grams of meth, heroin, cannabis, and other controlled substances, plus drug equipment all being seized.  He has already served 231 days in jail, and had bail set at $100,000 after his arrest.
