He could be resentenced to between two and five years in prison if he violates his probation.

Knott was arrested at approximately 5:15 p.m. Oct. 16, 2013, in a traffic stop just outside his home after authorities received a tip he had drugs in his car, said Lt. Pat Gengler, spokesman for the Kane County sheriff's office.

Authorities seized about 2.4 pounds of marijuana from Knott's vehicle, said Gengler, who could not provide an estimated street value for the drugs.

Knott's defense attorney, Victor Puscas, said his client's lack of felony criminal history played a part in getting probation under the plea agreement approved by Kane County Judge John Barsanti.

"On balance, it's a pretty fair outcome," Puscas said.

Knott's only previous arrest in Kane County was in 1992 in West Dundee for misdemeanor battery and property damage, records show.
