Theft plea brings probation

Theft plea brings probation

An Urbana woman has been ordered to serve drug court probation and repay hundreds of dollars after pleading guilty to theft.

Marjorie Hill, 43, whose last known address was in the 2000 block of Fletcher Street, Urbana, was sentenced to 30 months of drug court probation and ordered to make $1,708 in restitution to a person from whom she stole.

Hill pleaded guilty to theft, admitting that on July 3, she used an 86-year-old Urbana man's debit card to make unauthorized purchases. The man allowed her to take his card to pay for a single prescription she told him she needed, according to Urbana police, but she used it for other things.

In exchange for her guilty plea, two other theft charges were dismissed.
