Five men sentenced to conditional discharge

Five men sentenced to conditional discharge

URBANA — Five men who admitted participating in an attack on a group of men in Urbana in August have each been sentenced to two years of conditional discharge.

Craig Armour, 21, of the 1300 block of Paula Drive, Champaign; Dundre Hill, 18, of Westchester; Marc Mack, 21, of Chicago; Marshall Reed 18, of Chicago; and Saderous Yarbrough, 19, of Chicago, all pleaded guilty earlier this month before Champaign County Judge Tim Difanis to a single count of misdemeanor battery in connection with a Aug. 30 incident in which they were arrested for an attack on three other men that happened in the 1200 block of West Oregon in Urbana.

The three men were on their way to the Canopy Club on Goodwin about 11:50 p.m. when they were surrounded by a group of eight or nine men, some of whom began hitting the trio. One of the victims, a 19-year-old Champaign man, was knocked out and had to receive hospital treatment.

Conditional discharge is a form of probation that does not require regular reporting to a probation officer.

In exchange for their pleas, Assistant State’s Attorney Troy Lozar dismissed more serious charges of aggravated battery against each of the men.

Well that will teach these donut holes a lesson now, maybe they can come back for a return engagement and severly hurt somebody thinking how easy they got it the first time. I could just imagine how the victims feel about this.
