Ricardo Hite, 57, of Urbana was sentenced to 12 years in prison for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

This is the latest in a series of drug-related offenses that Hite has been charged with. He was sent to prison for two prior drug cases.

Hite pleaded guilty to this recent offense in September, and police issued a search warrant of his home at the 1400 block of West Beardsley Avenue due to information obtained about recent drug buys.
