Posted: Updated:

URBANA, Ill. (WAND) - An Urbana man who was on probation in connection with a drug charge has been resentenced to 14 years in prison.

According to a release from the Champaign County State's Attorney's Office, Daytreon Pettis, 24, was sentenced to 14 years in prison after a resentencing hearing on a petition to revoke probation in connection with a 2014 charge.  During the resentencing hearing, Champaign Police Detective Ben Newell testified that Pettis was arrested in connection with an undercover cocaine purchase in December 2016.

Detective Newell also testified that Pettis was allegedly involved in a shooting on November 4, 2016 that left one person paralyzed.  Police say charges in that case were dismissed prior to trial, due to the victim's refusal to cooperate with prosecutors.

Pettis received 183 credit for previous time served.
