Failing to comply with a probation sentence has earned Daniel B. Young a four-year stay in prison.

Young, 33, Paris, appeared in custody for the May 6 criminal and traffic call in Edgar County Circuit Court and was resentenced after his original probation sentence was revoked for a Class 1 felony possession of methamphetamine conviction. Pursuant to the agreed sentence he received four years in the Illinois Department of corrections with credit for 78 days previously served and ordered to pay all prior financial obligations.

In another matter, Young admitted a petition to revoke his conditional discharge sentence for a Class A misdemeanor domestic battery conviction and was resentenced to 120 days in jail subject to the court’s discretion, two years of conditional discharge and ordered to pay all previous financial obligations.
