An Island Lake man convicted of selling five doses of fentanyl-laced heroin to a confidential informant will serve a seven-year prison sentence.
Richard Susinka, 38, of the 3300 block of Greenwich Lane, accepted an offer from the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office on Thursday.
He pleaded guilty to a felony heroin delivery charge, typically punishable by as many as 15 years in prison.
The person to whom he sold the heroin was a confidential informant, according to a news release the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office sent Friday.
After his arrest, Susinka was charged with delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance within 500 feet of a park and possession of a controlled substance.
In exchange for his plea, prosecutors agreed to dismiss the remaining charges, and McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge sentenced Susinka to prison.
Susinka previously served a three-year prison sentence for a 2005 burglary conviction out of McHenry County.
He also was sentenced to two years in prison in 2012 for felony theft and three years in prison for a 2016 conviction of possession of a controlled substance, public records show.
