Levi sentenced to one year in prison

PRINCETON — Pamela S. Levi, 31, of Princeton was sentenced to one year in the Illinois Department of Corrections for the Class 4 felony of unlawful possession of a controlled substance, heroin on Oct. 10 by Associate Circuit Judge C. J. Hollerich. In addition to the prison sentence, Levi was ordered to pay fines, fees and court costs totaling $2,212 by June 27, 2014. The court found the offense was committed as a result of the use of a controlled substance.

On Jan. 5, a DePue police officer stopped a vehicle operated by Levi for a violation of the Illinois Vehicle Code.

In speaking with Levi, the police officer believed, based on his experience, that Levi was under the influence of a controlled substance. Levi consented to a search of her person where heroin in an amount less than one gram was found. Levi was then taken into custody and charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Levi’s prior criminal record include Bureau County convictions for obstructing a peace officer in 2000 and retail theft in 2012.
