— Reginald Washington, 47, of Delavan is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 30 for possession with intent to deliver more than 40 grams of cocaine.

Washington’s brother, 36-year-old Darren Agnew of Delavan, was sentenced July 6 to six years in prison and six years extended supervision in a companion case on an identical charge

At his hearing Monday before Walworth County Judge John Race, Washington said his guilty plea was voluntarily and entered with no plea agreements attached. He could receive a maximum sentence of 46 years, although that’s not likely.

“It’s inconceivable that someone would be sentenced to 40 years for this offense, but that’s what the Legislature decided,” Race said during the hearing. Race sentenced Agnew, and he is scheduled to sentence Washington.

Agnew’s and Washington’s addresses are listed as 70 Franklin St., Delavan. They were arrested in the town of Geneva on Feb. 19 after a traffic stop. Police reported finding a bag of cocaine weighing 2.2 ounces on the vehicle’s center console.

Both men initially entered pleas of not guilty but later changed their pleas to guilty.
