Urbana man gets eight years for having Ecstasy for sale

URBANA — An Urbana man who admitted having Ecstasy that he intended to sell was sentenced Tuesday to eight years in prison.

Quandrell Phagan, 40, of the 500 block of Crystal Lake Drive pleaded guilty to possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance before Judge Tom Difanis.

Phagan admitted that on Nov. 28, he had 44 MDMA pills in his home.

Assistant State's Attorney Kristin Alferink said Phagan was arrested following a court-authorized search of his home by members of the Street Crimes Task Force, who found the drugs in four different plastic bags that day.

In exchange for his guilty plea to the MDMA charge, other charges alleging he possessed a loaded handgun and ammunition for it and cannabis that he intended to sell were dismissed.

Phagan was given credit on his sentence for 168 days served and ordered to pay fines, fees and costs in excess of $4,600.

Court records show he has prior convictions for possession of a stolen vehicle, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and theft.
