PRINCETON — Miguel A. Reynoso, 24, of Bronx, N.Y., was sentenced on Feb. 28 to 12 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections after being found guilty of the Class X felony of unlawful possession of a controlled substance (fentanyl) following a stipulated bench trial on Jan. 20.

Reynoso was also ordered by Associate Circuit Judge C.J. Hollerich to a three-year mandatory supervised release. He was given credit for 236 days served in pretrial custody and to pay $8,052 in fines, fees and costs within six months following his release from prison.

Reynoso was arrested on July 7, 2016, by members of the Tri-DENT Drug Task Force following a traffic stop on Interstate 80. The drug K-9 alerted on the vehicle, and agents found bundles of a white powdery substance weighing over 400 grams of fentanyl in a hidden compartment in Reynoso’s vehicle.

Reynoso does not have a prior criminal history. He was represented by attorney Frank Valenti of Villa Park.
