A Norwalk drug dealer has pleaded guilty to a felony charge.

Richard Leroux, 48, of 107 E. Main St., pleaded guilty Friday in Huron County Common Pleas Court to trafficking in marijuana in the vicinity of a school, a fourth-degree felony.

In exchange, the state dismissed a charge of possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony. Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said as part of the plea, Leroux will also forfeit about $1,900.

Leroux was charged with trafficking in marijuana, in connection with selling marijuana to a confidential informant. He will be sentenced Nov. 7.

Leave it to the Leroux's to turn in their family!

Excuse me but as someone with Leroux as my last name, I take offense to this. Don't judge the whole family by one branch of the family tree. I am a productive member of society with a stable job and a college degree, and just about everyone in MY branch of the family tree can say the same. It's highly unfair to judge us all by one.

You're in here for some marijuana?!?!?! Boo this man!!! Get real people. If your only beef with this guy is Marijuana, then I suggest you go have a shot of bleach. If hes selling to kids, then I guess the kids are smart enough to not do bath salts, drink hand sanitizer, drink alcohol, do acid, etc. Marijuana is harmless and this guy is taking up valuable time they could be spending on Real drugs. Heroin, pills, crack, cocaine, etc.

Totally agree with you on this one rickross2. This senseless activity is what clogs the courts documents and makes money for fining people like this. But in the long run it's us taxpayers who are paying the police to set up someone to buy a $60 sack of weed. The judge that sets the fines, us the taxpayers pay for this! Seems like here in Norwalk we should be setting up all the herion buys and the pills buys. This is just plain ridiculous!

Stop attacking all the weed men and get the Heroin and cocane off norwalks streets. Ive never heard of someone stealing, burglurizing, hurting or killing anyone over some herb. I knew and know alot of schmucks that have done all those things to get heroin and would love to have a new friend to do it with them child or adult. The heroin destroys any values that person holds or held dear to them.

Nic once again you lack the proper knowledge to make a stand in this argument. People don't just take up Heroin... Weed is a gateway drug. It may not be very dangerous, but after awhile people will want something more, a better "fix". So they will find a new drug whether its Cocaine or Heroin. Weed is what most addicts start with, get that off of the streets first.

Nic Williams

I personally know way more people that started on other drugs or started smokin bud and never touched heroin. so lil mister perfect you stand corrected. dont comment on a subject you know nothing about.

Nic Williams

Now if you want to go after him for selling by a school or selling other drugs thats respectable. However me and ALL of my friends that used to or still smoke weed never touched heroin and most other drugs and never will. If you need a needle or straw to use it its not ok in my book.

Marijuana is not only the answer to alot of our prescription pill problems, but it could also help reduce the massive amount of debt built up by Barry. It does wonders for cancer patients as well. Ever notice how people get really skinny before cancer takes them out? Well marijuana can give them the appetite that they need to eat and get nutrients. Legalize it!!!!!!

Nic Williams

Its also the answer to a healthier economy as well. It has more uses as a plant than any other crop we grow in this nation.
