Updated 7/12/2012 6:21 PM

A 30-year-old Lincolnwood man pleaded guilty Thursday to selling ecstasy pills near Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg.

In exchange for Scott Soloman's guilty plea to the class X felony of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, Cook County Judge Ellen Mandletort sentenced him to 10 years in prison with credit for the 105 days he has spent in custody since his arrest on March 6.


Schaumburg police arrested Soloman following a meeting Solomon had with a confidential informant, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Todd Dombrowski. After Soloman's arrest, investigators recovered 43 pills later identified as MDMA or ecstasy, Dombrowski said.

Mandletort asked Soloman if he wanted her to issue an order placing him in the department of corrections drug treatment program. Soloman declined, indicated he would request treatment once he was assigned a facility.

Soloman must complete at least 50 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
