Charleston man resentenced to prison

URBANA — A Charleston man who admitted violating his probation for trespass by using cannabis was resentenced to prison even though he wasn't there to hear about it.

Champaign County Judge Heidi Ladd on Friday resentenced the absent Levi Nadolny, 29, to three years in prison for a crime that happened in Urbana almost two years ago.

Nadolny had pleaded guilty to criminal trespass to residence in connection with an April 5, 2012, incident in which he entered a home in the 1700 block of Cindy Lynn Street in Urbana while and man and woman were present. In June 2012, he was sentenced to two years of probation and 64 days in jail for that and a more serious charge of home invasion was dismissed.

Assistant State's Attorney Matt Banach said a petition to revoke Nadolny's probation was filed in August alleging Nadolny twice tested positive for cannabis and failed to finish substance abuse treatment. Nadolny admitted the allegations in January and was set for resentencing Friday.

The hearing went forward without him.

Banach said in addition to being wanted to begin serving his prison term, Nadolny also has a pending aggravated driving under the influence charge.
