Former School District 186 board of education president and Country Financial agent Adam Lopez of Springfield was sentenced to 11 years in prison by Associate Judge Rudolph Braud in Sangamon County court Tuesday.

The 38-year-old Lopez had faced up to 30 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, though with no past criminal history, prosecutors asked the judge for a sentence of 15 years.

Lopez, in a Sangamon County Jail issued uniform, stared straight ahead when Braud pronounced the sentence, capping the nearly two-hour hearing.

Lopez will serve the sentence at 50% and will get credit for 965 days he served in the county jail.

Upon completion of the sentence, Lopez will have to complete three years of mandatory supervised release.

Lopez pleaded guilty to the most serious theft charge on May 3.

Under an agreement with the state’s attorney’s office, three counts of financial exploitation of the elderly and a count of financial exploitation of a person with disabilities against Lopez were dismissed.
