An Oberlin woman convicted of trafficking in heroin in the vicinity of a juvenile was sentenced to community control Thursday in Huron County Common Pleas Court.
Kristy L. Dunn, 30, wasn't eligible for a prison sentence because she had no other felony convictions, said Richard Woodruff, assistant prosecutor.
She was convicted of a fourth-degree felony.
Woodruff said the community control sentence is for three years, with a 90-day discretionary jail sentence.
"The probation officer can send her to jai without going back to court if she violates the terms of her parole," Woodruff said.
In exchange for Dunn's guilty plea, Woodruff agreed earlier to dismiss a third-degree felony from another related case.
Dunn was charged with intimidation of a witness in connection with a Sept. 12 incident. Attorneys have said the defendant reportedly threatened to physically harm a female witness involved in the drug transaction which happened March 14. Woodruff said Dunn sold 2 grams of heroin to a confidential informant.
