URBANA — An Urbana man who admitted having heroin intended for sale has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Champaign County Judge Tom Difanis also agreed to recommend that Antwoine B. High, 40, whose last known local address was in the 0-100 block of Squire Court, be sent to a prison where he can get drug treatment.
High pleaded guilty to possession with intent to deliver heroin, admitting that on May 31, 2012, he had about 2.6 grams of heroin on him, packaged for sale, when he was a passenger in a car stopped by Champaign police.
In exchange for his plea, three other criminal cases filed against him in 2012 and 2013 for possession with intent to deliver heroin and burglary were dismissed.
Assistant State's Attorney Stephanie Weber said High had prior convictions for possession and delivery of a controlled substance, theft, criminal damage to property and retail theft.
High was also ordered to pay about $2,840 in fines and fees. He was given credit on his sentence for 102 days already served.
