Cox admitted providing false information on a check worth $250,000. The money was supposed to help repair the Parkview Apartments. Cox lost the property to the bank and eventually to the Village of Rantoul at a loss of about $2 million.
He'll serve 27 months in federal prison and pay $650,000 in restitution to the bank.
