Man faces Class X felony charge over cocaine
URBANA — A Champaign man who allegedly sold crack cocaine in Urbana on Thursday afternoon has been charged with a Class X felony.
Marvin D. Bennett, 43, who listed an address in the 1100 block of North Walnut Street, was charged Friday with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.
Urbana police detective Shaun Cook said Bennett was arrested about 1 p.m. Thursday after he was seen selling about 2 grams of crack cocaine to a person working with police in the parking lot of a business in the 200 block of North Broadway Avenue in Urbana.
The offense is a more serious felony because it allegedly happened within 1,000 feet of Crystal Lake Park.
If convicted, Bennett faces between six and 30 years in prison. He's due back in court May 11. Judge Richard Klaus set his bond at $25,000.
