Joliet man sentenced on drug charges


A Joliet man will spend several years in prison after admitting he sold millions of dollars worth of cocaine in Decatur.

A Macon County judge sentenced Willie Ford, 38 of Joliet to 34 years in prison. He must also pay a $100,000 fine. That's for the nearly 900 grams of cocaine police found in his possession.

Ford also had a prior conviction for the same offense. The charges come after months of investigation into alleged cocaine sales in Decatur.
