Teen pleads guilty, gets five years for burglary
URBANA — A Rantoul teen who admitted he broke into a home in that village has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Christian Barragan, 17, of the 200 block of Illinois Drive, pleaded guilty Tuesday to residential burglary, admitting that on March 22, he broke into a home in the 1200 block of Magnolia Drive.
A second count of burglary to the Sol Azteca Mexican Restaurant on March 13 was dismissed in return for his plea.
Judge Harry Clem agreed to recommend Barragan for a sentence to boot camp, a decision ultimately made by the Department of Corrections.
Barragan had a previous conviction for burglary that he received earlier this year for a break-in to the La Victoria grocery store at 126 E. Sangamon Ave., Rantoul.
