Teen gets probation for burglary

URBANA — A Champaign teen who admitted his role in the burglary of a woman's home has been sentenced to two years of probation.

Corey P. Hill, 18, who listed an address in the 1100 block of West Springfield Avenue, pleaded guilty Monday to burglary, admitting that on March 6, he entered a home in the 300 block of Kenwood Road, Champaign, without the resident's permission.Assistant State's Attorney Troy Lozar dismissed a more serious charge of residential burglary, which carried a mandatory prison term.

Lozar said Hill admitted that he took a safe and gun from the woman's home. Another charge of unlawful possession of weapons was also dismissed.

The case against co-defendant Cassius Clark, 26, of the 500 block of South Victor Street, Champaign, for residential burglary and unlawful use of weapons by a felon is unresolved.

Hill was told to have no contact with the victim or her home. He was also ordered to spend 12 days in jail and given credit for time served.
