CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - An Urbana woman is being put behind bars 15 years after she was sentenced to prison.

The (Champaign) News-Gazette (https://bit.ly/2nNkdcB ) reports 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.
