An area man pleaded guilty Monday to having a half-gram of heroin during a local traffic stop.
Shaun M. O'Donnell, 28, of East Palestine, will be sentenced April 10 for possession of heroin. The Norwalk Police Department handled the Aug. traffic stop related to the defendant driving with a suspended license.
"This is his first felony, so he's not prison eligible," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.
O'Donnell, who is out on bond, is subject to random drug screens.
