Filed 4/30/08 NO. 4-07-0073
IN THE APPELLATE COURT
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS,
Circuit Court of
Arnold F. Blockman,
JUSTICE TURNER delivered the opinion of the court:
In December 2006, a jury found defendant, Ivran
Galmore, guilty of the offense of unlawful possession with intent
to deliver a controlled substance. In January 2007, the trial
court sentenced defendant to 19 years in prison and imposed a
mandatory street-value fine of $10,000.
On appeal, defendant argues the trial court erred in
ordering him to pay a $10,000 street-value fine. We vacate and
remand with directions.
In September 2004, a grand jury indicted defendant on
one count of unlawful possession with intent to deliver a con-trolled
substance (720 ILCS 570/401(a)(2)(A) (West 2004)),
alleging he knowingly and unlawfully possessed with the intent to
deliver 15 grams or more but less than 100 grams of a substance
containing cocaine. Defendant pleaded not guilty.
In December 2006, defendant's jury trial commenced.
