Urbana Woman Sentenced To 15 Years

An Urbana woman is being put behind bars for 15 years after she was sentenced to prison.
Reports indicate that 44-year-old Aretha L. Baughman was arrested this week in Champaign County after a probation officer learned she was wanted on a 2002 warrant.
Baughman had been arrested on drug charges in 2000 and placed on probation as part of a plea bargain. After she violated her probation she was ordered to return to court for resentencing in October 2002. When she didn't show up, a judge sentenced her to six years in prison and issued a warrant for her arrest.
A probation officer who accompanied sheriff's deputies on a call to Baughman's home for a possible domestic dispute discovered there was a warrant for Baughman's arrest.
