A Kankakee man was sentenced to his 11th prison term Monday in west suburban St. Charles.

Frederick R. Hampton, 51, was sentenced to 18 years in prison following two felony convictions for possessing a controlled substance and intent to deliver, and one misdemeanor for resisting a peace officer, according to the Kane County state’s attorney’s office.

About 1 a.m. June 1, 2018, Aurora police stopped Hampton’s vehicle for a traffic violation, prosecutors said. While being questioned, Hampton allegedly made suspicious movements with his left hand and refused to get out of the vehicle when asked.

After he eventually got out of the car, officers found more than 12 grams of rock cocaine in small plastic bags in Hampton’s pocket and under the driver’s seat, as well as $195 in small bills in the center console, prosecutors said.
