Joshua Evans sentenced Thursday to 70 months

A Quincy man, who pleaded Guilty to a federal drug charge, has been sent to prison.

Joshua Evans was in Federal District Court in St. Louis Thursday for his sentencing hearing, which has been delayed seven previous times. Court records show he was sentenced to 70 months in prison, or just under 6 years. Evans pleaded Guilty in June 2017 to one count of Conspiracy to distribute meth, for a incident in Audrain County in September, 2015. He entered that plea two weeks before his trial was to start. In return, two counts of meth distribution were dropped. Evans previously faced charges in Adams County of Manufacturing a Controlled Substance and Meth possession. Those were dropped by prosecutors in December.

Evans was first picked up as part of a three-day drug sting in Quincy and Adams County in 2015 that saw over 25 people arrested.
