Meth cook ordered to pay for cleanup in Illinois

Thirty six year old, Ronald Seagraves, was sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison for Conspiracy to Manufacture, Distribute and Possess with Intent to Distribute 500 grams or more of Methamphetamine; Possession of Products with the Intent to Manufacture Methamphetamine; and Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine. In addition, he was ordered by the U.S. District Court in East St. Louis, Illinois to pay restitution to the DEA in the amount of $3,579, for the cost incurred by the DEA in the cleanup associated with Seagraves methamphetamine manufacturing activities.

*No other restitution for cleanup costs were mentioned in the DEA report. I think it is safe to assume, that once again the owner of the property will be responsible for paying the bill for decontaminating the property, without any financial help of any kind. That’s wrong, Why aren’t the people we elect to protect our rights as hard-working, tax-paying citizens, doing anything to help the innocent victims of meth crimes?
