Posted: Updated:

URBANA, Ill. (WAND) - A Champaign man who had 10 ounces of cannabis on him during a traffic stop is set to serve four years in prison.

Joseph Carpenter-Moor Jr., 26, of Urbana, pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession with intent to deliver cannabis.

The arrest comes from a May arrest, when police were searching for Carpenter-Moore in connection to a domestic incident.

Police say Carpenter-Moore intervened in a domestic dispute between a man and a woman. He fired shots at the man, who was under court order to not have contact with the woman.

Because Carpenter-Moore took a guilty plea, multiple charges were dropped on him including: aggravated discharge of a weapon, aggravated battery with a gun and possession of a weapon by a felon. A charge for possession of Ecstasy was also dropped.

Carpenter-Moore had prior convictions for burglary, battery, retail theft and resisting a peace officer.
