Oswego Drug Dealer Gets 6 Years in Prison

Nov 29, 2016 07:45AM ● Published by Steven Jack

Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis announced Monday that James P. Vartiak, of 35 Chippewa, Oswego, was sentenced to 6 years in prison for Unlawful Delivery of a Controlled Substance.

The incidents that lead to conviction occurred in January and February when Vartiak delivered heroin and other controlled substances to an undercover officer working with the Kendall County
Cooperative Police Assistance Team.

Vartiak sold the officer heroin on three separate occasions. Vartiak was on parole for another drug delivery offense when he was arrested on these charges, Weis said.

Vartiak received an 8 year prison sentence, but requested and completed impact incarceration (Boot Camp) with the Illinois Department of Corrections.

“Mr. Vartiak requested he be placed in a facility with the Department of Corrections to deal with his substance abuse issues," Weis said. "While he has requested and received treatment on prior occasions, Vartiak continues to sell drugs to those within our community. Hopefully, this sentence, with treatment, will help Mr. Vartiak become a productive member of society upon his release.”

Vartiak will be required to serve 2 years of mandatory supervised release after he serves his six year prison sentence.
