URBANA — A Champaign woman who admitted using a stolen credit card at an Urbana store was sentenced to eight years in prison.
Eugenia Estes-Keys, 33, who listed an address in the 200 block of Holts Drive, pleaded guilty Wednesday before Champaign County Judge Heidi Ladd to burglary, admitting that on May 19 she entered the Meijer Store, 2500 S. Philo Road, intending to commit a theft.
Estes-Kays had been arrested in July in connection with the theft of credit cards in May from a locker at the Activities and Recreation Center in Champaign that were later used at the Meijer store. She was also ordered to make $591 in restitution.
