A Bellevue woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to selling one-tenth of a gram of heroin to a confidential informant.

Sarah M. David, 29, of 1016 Northwest St., was convicted of an amended count of trafficking in heroin. Prosecutors lowered the charge from a fourth-degree felony to a fifth-degree felony, which is punishable by six to 12 months behind bars. Her sentencing date is June 11.

David said she has a prior felony conviction, but it happened after the April 16, 2013 controlled drug buy in Huron County.

Currently, she is serving a 75-day sentence at the Sandusky County Jail on misdemeanor charges through Bellevue Municipal Court.

David earlier signed a personal recognizance bond in the local heroin case, which means she signed a court document in which she promised to appear for future hearings and didn't have to pay any money.

She will be screened for possible acceptance into a community-based corrections facility, a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education. Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway told attorneys he wasn't promising that a CBCF would be the resolution of David's case, but said having her screened now would speed up the process.
