Rantoul man who admitted car theft gets probation

URBANA — A Rantoul man who admitted he stole a car last summer has been sentenced to a year of probation.

Terrell Holt, 22, whose last known address was in the 200 block of Keystone Drive, pleaded guilty Wednesday before Judge Harry Clem to theft over $500, admitting that on Sept. 4, he possessed a car that had been reported stolen from East Memphis, Tenn. It had a license plate that had been reported stolen from Champaign.

Holt was found in the car on Hunter Street in Urbana and claimed the owner was letting him sleep in it, a police report said.

Holt was ordered to spend 116 days in the county jail but was given credit for time served.

Assistant State's Attorney Claire Sharples-Brooks said Holt had prior convictions for residential burglary and forgery.
