PRINCETON — A rural Walnut man has pleaded guilty to the Class 2 felony of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, heroin.
Travis J. McInnes, 31, entered his guilty plea on Sept. 17 in Bureau County Court before Associate Circuit Judge C.J. Hollerich. The judge ordered the probation department to conduct a pre-sentence investigation and set a sentencing hearing for 1:15 p.m. Oct. 29.
McInnes was represented in court by Public Defender Michael Henneberry. Prosecuting the case was State’s Attorney Patrick Herrmann.
In April 2013, a cooperating individual working with the TRIDENT task force made arrangements to buy heroin from McInnes. Under the surveillance of task force agents, the cooperating individual met with McInnes at a Princeton business. Following the meeting, McInnes was placed under arrest. The cooperating individual bought eight separate bags of a substance from McInnes for $200. The substance in four of the bags were tested at the crime lab and determined to be 0.2 of a gram of heroin. The $200 in U.S. currency was recovered from McInnes.
