He is due in court Feb. 4.

Defense attorney Vince Solano could not immediately be reached for comment about his client and the 30-month counseling and therapy-intensive program.

If convicted of the felony charge of possession of between 15 and 200 pills of Ecstasy, White could face between four and 15 years in prison. Aurora police arrested him in April 2013.

According to police, White was arrested in Geneva after an employee at the coffee shop, 229 W. State St., flagged down an officer and reported a man locked in the restroom. The officer found a man on the floor, along with several foil packets and a used hypodermic needle. Police later found a used hypodermic needle, a metal spoon and two cotton swabs in White's right shoe, and two foil packets of suspected heroin in his sock.

White was charged in Geneva with possession of a controlled substance, obstructing justice, possession of a hypodermic needle/syringe and possession of drug paraphernalia. The most serious charges carry up to three years in prison.
