Kevin R. Lockwood, 23, of the 200 block of Parkside, was sentenced to eight years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for the unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

In June 2012 Lockwood was arrested after he sold heroin to members of the Kendall County Cooperative Police Assistance Team (C.P.A.T.), said Weis. Lockwood delivered heroin to an undercover police officer within 1000 feet of a local park.

“Their work continues to send a message that selling heroin in Kendall County will not be tolerated, and will hopefully act as a deterrent to others who would contemplate committing the same offense,” said Weis of the C.P.A.T.

Lockwood will be required to serve three years of mandatory supervised release after he serves his eight-year prison sentence.

I'm glad you spent time working with kids but it does not give you the right to judge and insult the parents without knowing the whole story and listening to "varying stories"? Go back and read your posts. If you were worth your weight as a counselor you would know to hold judgement till you knew the whole story. Everyone is entitled to an opinion that is based on truth, not assumption. Is this how you handled the kids you counseled? if so I feel sorry for them. Nobody said that he doesn't deserve the sentence he got, just that it is sad, and you start pointing fingers? He will pay his debt to society which does not include him or his parents answering to you.

Literally none of your arguments are making a difference to anyone's opinion. People need to stop spending so much time on this website. The guy dealt Heroin, and now he's in prison! That's all there is to it! So everyone please just shut up. #YOLO

Everyone is responsible for his/her own actions and the results of his/her actions. Unfortunately this family has experienced the negative outcome. It is well documated that the results of drug addition is death, jail or getting sober...hopefully Kevin will get sober in jail. The parents allowed this in their home. We as a community are effected as these guys are selling drugs to our children. We do have a voice in this.

I have got to say, most of Gladys' comments on this website are based solely on fabrications. Please quote anywhere in this article where they mentioned the parents approval of this drug in their house. It is as if you hear voices...

I have to say, I am a family friend of this amazing family. And never should you judge Mr. And Mrs. Lockwood, they are good people. But the addiction is within the whole family. We our have our problems, even you. Theirs was just put on a bulliten board. We should keep this family in our prayers. Imagine how they feel? Mark & Kevin are taking this as a blessing to turn their lives around.
