CHARLESTON — A man who was one of four people arrested on suspicion of methamphetamine sales at a Mattoon motel was sentenced to prison for that and a theft offense.
Taylor D. Collins pleaded guilty to a charge in connection with the Nov. 21, 2018, arrest at Motel 6 in Mattoon, and one in connection with a building break-in, also in Mattoon, one month before that.
Collins, 26, of Mattoon, pleaded guilty to a methamphetamine delivery charge that required a prison sentence of six to 30 years with a conviction. With the agreement reached in his case, he received a 10-year term.
He received the same sentence for the other case but that prison term will run at the same time as the one for his drug conviction.
Collins originally was charged with burglary in connection with the break-in of the building at a home on Western Avenue in Mattoon on Oct. 21, 2018.
He pleaded guilty to a felony theft charge with the plea agreement.
Coles County Circuit Judge James Glenn agreed to recommend Collins for a prison system drug treatment program.
It will be up to prison officials whether to admit him to the program but the judge's recommendation was needed for him to be eligible.

Glenn sentenced Collins by accepting the terms of a plea agreement that State's Attorney Jesse Danley and Assistant Public Defender Stephanie Corum recommended.
Case records say police responded to a report of a domestic battery at the motel and discovered methamphetamine in a vehicle and in one of the motel's rooms.
The methamphetamine was found in some of the suspects' possession and the investigation found that one of them had rented the room, the records say. The amount of the drug found came to just more than five ounces, according to the records.
One of the other suspects, Alexa K. Webb, 27, of Mattoon, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge in October.
Webb was sentenced to two years of first offender probation, which can result in no record of a conviction if completely successfully.
Also arrested at the motel were Colton T. Bloxom, 25, and Dayton L.H. Ellison, 23, both of Mattoon. They are both also charged with unrelated offenses and their cases are pending.
