Koch enters guilty pleas to delivery, possession felonies

PRINCETON — A Wyanet man has pleaded guilty to the Class 1 felony of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, cocaine, and to the Class 4 felony of unlawful possession of another’s credit card.

Kristopher A. Koch, 29, entered his guilty pleas on April 24 before Circuit Judge Marc Bernabei. On Jan. 25, 2012, the TRIDENT task force set up a controlled purchase of cocaine from Koch and purchased 3.2 grams from him in Princeton. Koch was indicted on May 11, 2012, by the Bureau County grand jury. An arrest warrant was issued, and Koch was arrested on June 18, 2012. Koch was sentenced by the judge to four years in the Illinois Department of Corrections and was recommended for the Impact Incarceration Program.

While out on bond, Koch used a credit card owned by a person, at whose residence he was living, without that person’s authority. At that time, Koch was charged with unlawful possession of another’s credit card. Koch was then sentenced to four months in the Bureau County Jail, placed on two and one-half years conditional discharge and ordered to pay fines of $407 and restitution of $136.

Koch had no prior criminal record.
