Drug, theft pleas bring probation

URBANA — A Champaign man who admitted having cannabis intended for sale and a stolen computer in his apartment has been sentenced to probation.

Zamarlon Parker, 23, of the 1100 block of North Third Street, pleaded guilty Tuesday before Judge Harry Clem to possession with intent to deliver cannabis and felony theft.

Police found about 3 ounces of cannabis in Parker's apartment on Feb. 20 during a court-authorized search done by Urbana police. On that same day, they found a MacBook Air laptop computer that had been stolen from the Adult Learning Lab, 300 S. Broadway Ave., U.

As part of a negotiated plea agreement, Parker pleaded guilty to those two charges for a sentence of 30 months of probation, to include mental health and substance abuse evaluations.

In exchange for his guilty pleas, another unrelated aggravated battery charge was dismissed.
