Burglary charge dismissed in plea on UI car break-in

URBANA — A Savoy man who admitted breaking into a car on the University of Illinois campus last summer has been sentenced to six months of electronic home detention.

Victor Salov, 23, who listed an address in the 500 block of Van Buren Street, pleaded guilty Monday before Judge Harry Clem to misdemeanor criminal trespass to vehicle, admitting that on July 25, he entered a car parked outside the Agricultural Engineering Sciences Building, 1304 W. Pennsylvania Ave., U. The car owner saw Salov in his car and confronted him. Police found property from the owner's car on him.

Salov was sentenced to 24 months of conditional discharge, a form of probation without reporting to an officer.

A more serious charge of burglary was dismissed.

Court records show Salov has a prior conviction for misdemeanor battery.
