Man sentenced to drug court in cocaine case
URBANA — A Champaign man who admitted he possessed cocaine last fall has been sentenced to 30 months of drug court probation.
Tracin Porter, 40, whose last known address was in the 1300 block of Williamsburg Drive, Champaign, pleaded guilty in early July to possession of less than 15 grams of cocaine. Champaign Judge Harry Clem imposed the sentence on Monday.
Champaign police had been investigating him and obtained a search warrant for his home, which they served on Oct. 17, 2012. They found several rocks of suspected crack cocaine.
In return for Porter's admission that he possessed cocaine, a more serious charge alleging he intended to sell it was dismissed.
Court records show he has prior convictions for delivery of a controlled substance, aggravated assault and driving under revocation.
