A former Willard man who went to prison for selling heroin has been released early into a Christian-based substance abuse treatment program.

Bradley C. Jones, 39, will be transported directly from the local jail to the Teen Challenge program in Youngstown.

"It's a very rigorous and challenging program," said Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway, who also said other participants who completed it have done well afterward.

"I think you'll find it a worthwhile program, a life-changing one," the judge told Jones.

Jones earlier was sentenced to 17 months in prison total for two separate drug charges. In mid-May, he pleaded guilty to one count each of trafficking in heroin for a Dec. 9, 2011 offense and possession of heroin for a Dec. 21, 2010 incident.

During the possession case, the Huron County Sheriff's Office and Bellevue Police Department raided a Bellevue hotel. Officers seized a large amount of heroin, some prescription pills, suspected marijuana and various drug paraphernalia as evidence.

If Jones violates the terms of his three years of intense probation, he faces the remainder of his 17-month prison term. Conway ruled Monday that the defendant's time in Teen Challenge wouldn't count toward that.
