Hannibal man sentenced to 10 years in prison on meth conviction

Hannibal man sentenced to 10 years in prison on meth conviction

6 days, 9 hours ago by Scott Hardy

Raymond Morton had three weapons counts dropped

A Hannibal man has pleaded Guilty to a drug charge in a settlement with prosecutors, and is going to prison.

Court records show that Raymond Morton pleaded Guilty Monday in Marion County Circuit Court to one count of drug possession. In return, three counts of unlawful possession of a weapon were dropped. After the plea, Morton was then sentenced to 10 years in prison. His sentence was increased because he was found to be a repeat offender. Morton admitted having meth when he and another person were arrested in an early-April raid by ACES officers on a home in the 300 block of North Arch in Hannibal.

Prosecutors had earlier said that officers found items consistent with meth use, along with two stolen handguns and an illegally possessed .22 caliber rifle.
