SYCAMORE – A 34-year-old DeKalb man has been sentenced to six years in prison for dealing cocaine and Ecstasy, according to a news release from the DeKalb County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Dangelo P. Henry, of the 1100 block of West Lincoln Highway, pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of unlawful delivery of a controlled subtance, unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

He must serve at least 75 percent of his sentence, according to state law.

Assistant State’s Attorney Scott Schwertley said during the plea hearing that Henry had less than 15 grams of cocaine he planned to sell last Feb. 26, and that he sold 2.6 grams of cocaine, as well as less than a gram of Ecstasy March 15.

“This sentence removes a drug dealer from the streets of DeKalb,” State’s Attorney Rick Amato said in a statement.

Henry was released on his signature May 29, but on Sept. 27, Judge Robbin Stuckert granted a motion by the state to increase his bond to $50,000, according to online records.

He has been credited with serving 160 days in the DeKalb County Jail.
