Former Illinois Sheriff Back in Arizona Federal Prison
Raymond Martin is serving his life sentence at a maximum-security prison near Tucson. That's where the former longtime Gallatin County law enforcer was being housed before he was resentenced earlier this month in Benton.
Martin was convicted in 2010, after witnesses testified that he was on duty when he supplied a drug dealer with marijuana stolen from a department evidence locker. After he was jailed, he allegedly plotted to have two potential witnesses assaulted or possibly killed. Neither was harmed because the would-be hit men got cold feet and told authorities.
