PRINCETON — A Princeton man was sentenced to 2½ years in the Illinois Department of Corrections after pleading guilty July 19 to theft/subsequent offense, a Class 4 felony, according to a press release.

Cody J. Merritt, 22, entered a plea agreement for using his employer’s gas credit card to fuel his own vehicle without the authority of the employer during the months of February and March 2013, according to the Bureau County Courthouse. He was employed by Norberg Memorial Home, Princeton.

Merritt, who was represented by Public Defender Michael Henneberry, also was ordered to pay fines, fees and costs totaling $457 and restitution in the amount of $4,553 within six months of his release from IDOC. He was given credit for time served since his arrest on May 21 to July 15 of this year.

The defendant’s prior felony convictions include possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony, in La Salle County, according to First Assistant State’s Attorney Anthony Sciuto.
