A 20-year-old woman was recently sentenced to 4 years of probation after being convicted on Class 1 felony charges, which can carry sentences as high as 15 years in prison. The woman was accused of being part of a drug selling ring operating in Urbana, IL, and was one of five people arrested on February 2, 2013 outside of a concert at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. Since being arrested, the young woman resumed her college coursework, secured a job at a bank, and also began volunteering with a children’s disability group.
At the time of her arrest, the woman had 44 MDMA pills on her, and others in the group were accused of attempting to sell cocaine, Ecstasy, nitrous oxide, cannabis, and LSD to college students. Other members of the drug distribution group have received prison sentences up to 12 years. One final individual was arrested in connection with this group, and was charged with money laundering.
