WOODSTOCK – A Crystal Lake man received a 4 1/2-year prison sentence after pleading guilty Thursday to a felony drug charge.

Randall D. Woody, 32, was charged in February with multiple drug offenses, including a Class X felony. He was again charged in April with possession of a controlled substance and possession of contraband in a penal institution for allegedly having heroin in the McHenry County Jail.

In exchange for his guilty plea, charges were reduced to attempted unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, that being heroin, a Class 3 felony. The rest were dismissed.

McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather accepted the plea deal and sentenced Woody to 4 1/2 years in prison.
