Man sentenced to 6 years for burglary

URBANA — An Urbana man who admitted breaking into an apartment in that city earlier this year has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Champaign County Judge Heidi Ladd agreed to recommend Robert M. Hayes, 21, who listed an address in the 1300 block of North Lincoln Avenue, for the Department of Corrections' boot camp program.

Hayes pleaded guilty Tuesday to residential burglary, admitting that he entered an apartment in the 1600 block of East Florida Avenue on June 18, intending to steal.

Court records show that at the time, Hayes was on probation for misdemeanor theft.
