Restaurant worker gets probation for using customer's credit-card info

URBANA — A restaurant employee who admitted using a customer's credit-card number to make unauthorized purchases has been sentenced to two years of probation.

Damonta Little, 24, who listed an address in the 1600 block of Melrose Park Court, pleaded guilty Wednesday before Judge Roger Webber to unlawful use of an account number, a felony.

He admitted that some time between August and September, he bought more than $150 worth of merchandise using the credit-card account of a man who had dined at Olive Garden in Champaign, where Little was employed.

Assistant State's Attorney Scott Larson said the victim reported the purchases to police in late September.

Little was also ordered to pay a $500 fine and court costs.

Larson said Little had prior convictions for unlawful use of weapons and aggravated robbery.
