Champaign man admits having meth, gets probation
URBANA — A Champaign man arrested more than a week ago in a drug raid on his home has pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine.
Paige Tomlinson, 27, who listed an address in the 0-100 block of O'Connor Court, was sentenced Monday to two years of probation and 12 days in jail, with credit for 12 days already served.
Tomlinson admitted he had about 8 grams of methamphetamine in his home on Aug. 8.
The Champaign SWAT team went to the home with a search warrant, acting on information they developed after police had received complaints of traffic in and out of the home, just south of Kirby Avenue and a block north of St. Matthew's Catholic Church.
A second defendant, Ashley Cordell, 26, of the same address, was also sentenced to two years of probation last week.
