A man who stole a carton of cigarettes from a business in Diamond earlier this year was sentenced in Grundy County last week.

Stephen Workman, 49, of Diamond, pled guilty to retail theft, a class 4 felony, and was sentenced to serve 2 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Grundy County court records show Workman will serve the two year sentence consecutively with a two year term out of Kankakee County, where he also pled guilty to retail theft.

Workman had previously been sentenced to 18 months in the Illinois Department of Corrections for a 2017 felony theft in La Salle County.

In addition, Workman had previously been sentenced to 3 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for a robbery in 1998 that occurred in Grundy County.
