SYCAMORE – A DeKalb man who pleaded guilty Tuesday to marijuana possession and residential burglary was sentenced to four years in prison.
Deontaye L. Bradley, 20, of the 1300 block of Chestnut Street in DeKalb, pleaded guilty to residential burglary, a Class 1 felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison, and possession of marijuana, a Class 3 felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
Bradley was charged in December with residential burglary. Police said he entered a home in the 300 block of Ash Court to look for money because the resident owed Bradley a debt.
In February, he was charged with possessing more than 500 but less than 2,000 grams of marijuana that same day in December.
Appearing during a hearing at the DeKalb County Courthouse in Sycamore, Bradley was sentenced to four years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for each charge; the two terms will be served concurrently.
He also was sentenced to one year of probation for the marijuana charge and two years of probation for residential burglary.
DeKalb County Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert told Bradley he will serve two years of probation since only one term of probation must be served and it has to be the greater term.
Other misdemeanor charges against Bradley, who waived his rights to a preliminary hearing and a pre-sentence investigative report, were dropped.
