Chicago man accused of selling cocaine near NIU

SYCAMORE – A 27-year-old Chicago man had his first court appearance Monday on allegations he sold less than a gram of cocaine near Northern Illinois University in November.

Devante L. Robinson, of the 7300 block of South Troy Street, was charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance.

He is accused of selling less than a gram of cocaine Nov. 16 to a confidential police source, authorities said. A warrant for his arrest was issued Aug. 6.

If convicted of the most serious charge, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, Robinson could face between four and 15 years in prison.

Bond was set at $150,000. Robinson is next due in court Wednesday.
