A Norwalk man convicted of selling drugs was put on probation Wednesday in Huron County Common Pleas Court.

Cody Jenkins, 22, of 408 S. Old State Road, Apt. 31, received three years of probation. He also was fined $250 and ordered to reimbursethe Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) $70 and pursue his GED.

Judge Jim Conway also sentenced Jenkins to a 90-day jail sentence on the work-release program.

Jenkins pleaded guilty in early February to one count of trafficking in oxycodone for a Jan. 23, 2013 transaction involving a confidential informant. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed a second, similar charge in connection with an incident the next day.

The defendant is subject to random drug screens and must undergo substance abuse treatment. If he violates the terms of their probation, he would face one year in prison.
