PEORIA (WEEK) – A local man considered by authorities as a “high-level” drug dealer in the Peoria area has been sentenced to just over 13 years in federal prison for distributing heroin.
Testimony and evidence presented at the week’s sentencing hearing showed John Henigan, 36, of Peoria caused the overdose death of a Washington man in April 2016. Court documents also revealed that after Henigan’s arrest in 2019, he provided a list of various heroin and crack cocaine customers, some of whom overdosed and died.
Henigan was not a drug user, but earned hundreds of dollars a day as a dealer, prosecutors said.
Authorities said evidence collected from Henigan’s phone showed he also brokered sales of stolen firearms.
Pekin and Morton Police, and the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office were among the agencies investigating the case.
