WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock man was sentenced to prison and recommended for bootcamp after pleading guilty Thursday to felony drug charges.

Andrew James Jacobs, 23, pleaded guilty to unlawful delivery of a controlled substance in a negotiated plea accepted by McHenry County Judge Gordon Graham.

Graham sentenced Jacobs to three years in prison.

Jacobs was charged in March with multiple felony drug charges, including a Class X. All other felony and misdemeanor charges were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea.

According to Assistant State's Attorney David Metnick, Jacobs had less than 10 capsules of 2CI, a controlled substance. The sheriff's office says 2CI is a drug commonly known as "bath salts," which mimic the effects of LSD or ecstasy.
