Former Ill. sheriff back in Tucson federal prison

Convicted in 2010 after witnesses testified that he was on duty when he supplied a drug dealer with marijuana stolen from a department evidence locker

Associated Press

BENTON, IL — A former southern Illinois sheriff is back in a federal lockup in Arizona after being sentenced again in a drug-trafficking case in which he allegedly plotted to have witnesses against him killed.

Raymond Martin is serving his life sentence at a maximum-security prison near Tucson. That's where the former longtime Gallatin County law enforcer was being housed before he was resentenced earlier this month in Benton.

Martin was convicted in 2010, after witnesses testified that he was on duty when he supplied a drug dealer with marijuana stolen from a department evidence locker.

After he was jailed, he allegedly plotted to have two potential witnesses assaulted or possibly killed. Neither was harmed because the would-be hit men got cold feet and told authorities.
