A Peoria man, who was sentenced to prison as a teenager for a 2005 shooting at Woodruff High School, is facing more prison time. 23 year old Dione Alexander pleaded guilty to possession of a weapon just before his trial was to begin Tuesday. That charge stems from a 2010 shooting in the 1200 block of West Millman in which two people were wounded. A second case against Alexander was dismissed as part of the plea agreement. Alexander, who faces up to 14 years in prison for the 2010 shooting, is already serving a 24 year sentence for the 2005 shooting incident. No one was hurt in that incident in which Alexander fired into a crowded hallway at Woodruff High School. In 2009, the state appellate court allowed Alexander to be released from prison but later the Illinois Supreme Court reinstated Alexander's 24 year prison sentence.
