A convicted drug dealer already serving time in prison has been convicted of similar felonies in Huron County.

Brian L. Yacob, 28, whose latest address was unavailable, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count each of aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine in a school zone and aggravated trafficking in cocaine in a school zone. His convictions were for two controlled drug buys near the Willard Sports Complex — respectively Jan. 23 and March 15, 2018, according to his indictment.

As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed one count of aggravated trafficking in drugs.

Yacob was sentenced to 30 months in prison Tuesday. He also was fined $5,000 and ordered to pay a $240 reimbursement to the Willard Police Department.

Since late September, Yacob has been serving a five-year prison sentence through Crawford County for five counts of trafficking in drugs, according to prison records.

In other hearings:

• Gary L. Lacy, 60, of Shelby, was fined $250 Wednesday for aggravated possession of carfentanil. During his three years of probation, he faces a 90-day discretionary jail sentence, which his probation officer can impose — in part or in whole — at any time without a hearing.

• Randi N. Mosley, 31, of Shiloh, was sentenced Wednesday to serve a four- to six-month term in a community-based corrections facility (CBCF) for an undisclosed probation violation. Her underlying conviction is aggravated trafficking in meth for an April 20, 2017 controlled drug buy. A CBCF is a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education.

• Travis W. Perrine, 32, of Fairmount, Ind., was fined $500 Wednesday and sentenced to a 90-day discretionary jail sentence for failure to provide his change of address. According to his indictment, he was convicted May 22, 2008 of pandering sexually-oriented matter through Sandusky County Common Pleas Court.

• Robert A. Sams, 19, most recently of 99 N. Hester St., pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of aggravated trafficking in meth and one charge of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity. In exchange, prosecutors dismissed five counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs and one charge each of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity and aggravated possession of drugs. Conway revoked the defendant’s $100,000 bond Tuesday and set Sams’ sentencing hearing for May 9.
