Wheaton Woman Sentenced to Jail Time in Undercover Drug Buys

A 21-year-old Wheaton woman was sentenced to 86 days in jail after pleading guilty Thursday to selling cocaine to undercover agents in a series of orchestrated drug buys, according to the Daily Herald. 

As part of a plea deal, Larissa Pyykkonen, of 518 Kipling Court, entered a guilty pleat to one count of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and was also sentenced to serve two years of probations and pay $1,200 in fines and fees, according to the article. 

She faced up to one to three years in prison on original drug charges after prosecutors said her and co-defendant Roger A. Johnson, 24, of Warrenville, sold less than 15 grams cocaine to undercover cops on at least two different occasions in February, the newspaper reports. 

Pyykkonen and Johnson were arrested on Feb. 20 following the undercover investigation by the Wheaton Police Department with assistance from the Warrenville Police Department, according to a city of Wheaton press release.

Johnson is next expected in court on May 20, according to online court records.
