Teen sentenced to probation for burglary

URBANA — A Rantoul teen who pleaded guilty in Champaign County Circuit Court to breaking into a neighbor's home has been sentenced to two years of probation.

Demarcus Buie,18, who listed an address in the 600 block of St. Andrews Circle, was also ordered Thursday to make restitution to the victim of $151.

Buie pleaded guilty to burglary for entering a home in the 700 block of St. Andrews Circle on Nov. 4.

A more serious charge of residential burglary was dismissed in return for his plea.

Rantoul police recovered several electronic items that had been stolen in the break-in.

Co-defendant Robbie Barrett, 25, also of the 600 block of St. Andrews Circle, failed to appear in court as ordered on Dec. 16 and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
