Heroin plea brings prison sentence
URBANA — A Chicago man who admitted having heroin for sale in Champaign has been sentenced to six years in prison.
Deantonio L. Lenoir, 23, pleaded guilty Thursday before Judge Tom Difanis to a single count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
Champaign police arrested Lenoir and co-defendant Levon Redding, 27, of Urbana, on July 23 for having about 7 grams of heroin packaged in 42 bags at a home in the 2500 block of West Springfield Avenue.
Redding pleaded guilty in September to the same charge and was sentenced to eight years in prison with a recommendation for boot camp.
