Minooka man gets 8-year prison sentence for LSD delivery

20-year-old Joliet woman also sentenced 8 years

A Kendall County judge has sentenced a Minooka man to eight years in state prison for delivering LSD to undercover police officers in 2017.

Judge Robert Pilmer on Nov. 20 sentenced Dakota Dunstan, 23, of the 300 block of Grande Drive, Minooka, to eight years in prison on a charge of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance as part of a negotiated plea agreement, Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis said.

In addition to his prison sentence, Dunstan will have to serve three years of mandatory supervised release, formerly known as parole.

Kendall County Cooperative Police Assistance Team officers arrested Dunstan along with his co-defendant, Adrianna Medlin, 20, of Joliet, in February 2017 after the pair sold LSD to the officers, Weis said. Medlin also received an eight-year state prison sentence in Kendall per a negotiated plea agreement.

Weis said that, according to records, Dunstan has two prior convictions for delivering drugs out of Will and Grundy counties. Dunstan was sent to prison on those charges in 2015, Weis said.

Weis praised the CPAT officers for their work to combat illegal drugs in the Kendall County area.

“While heroin continues to be a scourge upon on the community, we won’t turn a blind eye to the other illegal narcotics that are distributed by dealers in Kendall County,” Weis said.
