URBANA — A convicted murderer with a shooting conviction in his past will spend what amounts to the rest of his life in prison. Judge Roger Webber on Thursday sentenced Robbie Patton to 69 years in prison for the shooting death of one man and the wounding of three others a year ago in Campustown. Patton will have to serve at least 67 1/2 years and was given credit for about 15 months already served.
URBANA — A Champaign County jury Thursday acquitted a man on parole for selling drugs of doing the same thing. The jury deliberated about four hours before acquitting Martez Taylor, 27, of six counts of delivery of heroin that allegedly occurred between Feb. 21 and May 23 in Champaign. For three days, the jury heard detailed descriptions of the sales of the small amounts of heroin to two different informants working with members of the Champaign County Street Crimes Task Force.
URBANA — A Champaign County judge Monday sentenced a man who shot at a drug dealer, causing him to be cut with flying glass, to 12 years in prison. Jawuan Gipson, 20, who last lived in the 1000 block of Northwood Drive, Champaign, will have to serve at least 10 years of that sentence. A jury convicted Gipson in early November of aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated discharge of a firearm but acquitted him of armed robbery.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
