URBANA — A Chicago man who admitted possessing cannabis intended for sale was sentenced in Champaign County Circuit Court earlier this week to a year of probation.
Michael Tousant, 52, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to deliver cannabis, admitting that on May 24, 2010, he had about 2 pounds of cannabis in a car that Illinois State Polcie stopped for speeding on Interstate 57 south of Rantoul.
Co-defendant Samuel Mormon, 34, of Chicago, pleaded guilty to the same charge in October 2010 for a sentence of six years in prison. Rolanda Woodland, 23, of Fenton, Mo., also pleaded guilty in September 2010 to possession of cannabis for a year of conditional discharge.
In another Champaign County criminal case resolved recently with a guilty plea:
— Martin Davis, 17, who listed an address in the 400 block of West Beardsley Avenue, Champaign, was sentenced to four years of probation and 120 days in jail after pleading guilty to burglary.
He admitted breaking into a home in the 700 block of North Prairie Street in Champaign on Dec. 7. A more serious charge of residential burglary was dismissed in return for his plea.
