Three drug dealers have been convicted in Huron County Common Pleas Court.

Each defendant has a prior, local felony conviction.

Carlos Humberto Batrez, 47, most recently of 34 Washington St., Willard, pleaded guilty Tuesday to trafficking in heroin with the forfeiture of an unspecified vehicle. He has posted a $2,500 unsecured appearance bond and will be sentenced Jan. 30.

Humberto Batrez has a previous felony conviction, trafficking in cocaine, which means he could face a prison sentence. In April 2011, he was released successfully from probation and had all his civil rights restored, according to court records.

In another case, Dustin M. Lindsey, 32, most recently of 33 Washington St., Willard, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count each of aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine in the vicinity of a juvenile and trafficking in heroin. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed one charge each of aggravated trafficking in drugs and trafficking in a counterfeit controlled substance.

Judge Jim Conway revoked Lindsey’s $5,000 bond with a 10-percent provision. He will be sentenced Jan. 31. Lindsey has a previous local felony conviction, breaking and entering, from 2011.

And in a third case, Timothy A. Marvin, 42, of Attica, pleaded guilty Tuesday to trafficking in cocaine in exchange for the dismissal of a similar fifth-degree felony. He has posted a $2,500 unsecured appearance bond and will be sentenced Jan. 30. 

Marvin, in May 2002, received a local, three-year prison sentence for one count each of attempted felonious assault and burglary involving a Norwalk victim. Court records further indicate his two applications for early release were denied without hearings.
