Drug plea brings added prison time
URBANA — A Champaign man already serving a prison term for leaving the scene of an accident has been sentenced to six more years in prison for selling drugs.
Cory Jackson, 25, whose last known address was in the 1500 block of Lincolnshire Drive, pleaded guilty before Judge Tom Difanis to delivery of a controlled substance, admitting that on Feb. 7 he sold just under 2 grams of cocaine to an informant from his home.
Assistant State's Attorney Stephanie Weber said Urbana police were investigating Jackson and videotaped the transaction.
Jackson was sentenced to four years in prison in 2011 for leaving the scene of an injury accident. He will have to serve his sentence in the drug case after he's done with that.
Weber said Jackson had other convictions in his past for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver cannabis, obstructing a peace officer, driving under revocation and a misdemeanor weapons violation.
