People v. Winford, 1-05-3785

A conviction and sentence for possession of cocaine is affirmed over claims of error regarding the state's failure to prove defendant possessed cocaine when in fact the defendant had been appraised that he was on trial for a heroin offense mentioned in the indictment. However the fee order is modified where it was improperly assessed and the defendant is given credit under section 110-14.
