DeKalb man gets 6-year sentence for selling heroin

SYCAMORE – A 27-year-old DeKalb man was sentenced to 6 years in prison for selling heroin to an undercover DeKalb police officer in March, court records show.

Christopher Davis, of the 800 block of West Hillcrest Drive, pleaded guilty to unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school and resisting a peace officer Thursday, in exchange for prosecutors dropping several charges, including drug-induced homicide.

Davis had been accused of supplying heroin to Melissa Ramon, 33, of DeKalb, who overdosed in a coin laundry bathroom March 5, and died three days later, court records show. If he had been convicted of that charge, Davis would have been sentenced to between six and 30 years in prison.

The resisting a peace officer charge stemmed from an incident Tuesday.

Police said when Davis was being escorted onto the elevator on his way to the DeKalb County Courthouse, he pulled away from a DeKalb County Sheriff’s officer and swung his elbow at him twice, bloodying the officer’s lip, court records show.

Davis continued to resist until the officer unholstered his taser, at which time Davis stopped, court records show.
