Man facing felony charges pleads to misdemeanor

URBANA — An Urbana man who admitted he had a gun without the proper owner's identification was sentenced Tuesday to two years of conditional discharge.

Dyllyn Williams, 20, whose last known local address was in the 1100 block of East Florida Avenue, pleaded guilty to that misdemeanor offense, admitting that on March 13, 2012, he had a .38-caliber revolver but no FOID.

Williams had been arrested at Parkland College after a confrontation with authorities. After arriving late for a placement test and being denied admission, he got belligerent and used profane language, police said. Officers could smell cannabis coming from him and found a bag of cannabis on him.

Charges alleging he had cannabis intended for sale, resisted arrest and had a loaded gun in his car on school property were dismissed in return for his plea.

He was also sentenced to eight days in the county jail but given credit for time served.
