A 25-year-old Saybrook resident, who was a defendant in a McLean County drug trafficking case, was kept from getting almost a decade in prison due to a serious medical affliction that he has had since childhood.
Dustin Pulliam, who was involved in a massive marijuana shipment operation from California to multiple sources in McLean County, was given 36 months of probation instead of jail time through the Illinois Department of Corrections due to medical evidence showing that he has been suffering from cystic fibrosis since he was four months old.
Cystic fibrosis is a hereditary respiratory and digestive disease that clogs the lungs and obstructs the pancreas.
Pulliam pleaded guilty to a money laundering charge in December 2012, leading to the arrest of 23-year-old Nathaniel Nowlin (sentenced to 14 years) in California, 23-year-old Wesley Harvey of Ellsworth (sentenced to 9 years), Nowlin’s 66-year-old grandmother Michelle Donnell, and Nowlin’s brother Tylor, 22.
