Man accused of selling cocaine in Champaign
URBANA — A Champaign man accused of selling cocaine in Champaign has been charged with three different felony counts.
Andres Gomez-Gutierrez, 29, of the 1100 block of Pomona Drive, was charged Wednesday in Champaign County Circuit Court with three counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
The charges allege that on three different days in July, Gomez-Gutierrez had cocaine intended for sale.
Two of the counts allege sales of the drug that occurred in the parking lot of his apartment complex. Because it is within 1,000 feet of Parkland College, the charges are more serious Class X felonies, carrying penalties ranging from six to 30 years in prison upon conviction.
The third count alleges cocaine he had that Champaign County sheriff's deputies found in a court-authorized search of his home Tuesday. It's a Class 2 felony, which carries the possibility of probation.
Judge Richard Klaus set Gomez-Gutierrez's bond at $100,000 and told him to be back in court Sept. 17.
