Student receives reduced charges and probation after pleading guilty
A student from the University of Illinois was sentenced after pleading guilty to the Class 3 felony of one count of possession of cannabis with intent to deliver between 30-500 grams, according to the News-Gazette on May 27.
For pleading guilty, the student received a reprieve on more serious charges brought against her, including the intent to deliver LSD and ecstasy. In addition to being expelled from school, she received two years of probation, four months of electronic home detention, 100 hours of community service, and a hefty fine of $15,600.
