Convicted drug dealer Susan J. Terlizzi plans to appeal a jury's decision finding her guilty of selling marijuana.

"It's just wrong. I plan to appeal absolutely," the 44-year-old Wakeman resident said. "My attorney is aware of that. I'm going to prove my innocence."

On April 19, 2006, she sold "less than 100 grams" of marijuana to a female confidential informant at the Firelands Manor Mobile Home Park, Wakeman Police Chief Tim Hunker said. Terlizzi was one of several people accused in connection with the drug bust organized by the METRICH Drug Task Force.

After a two-day trial that started Tuesday, Terlizzi, of 5810 U.S. 20, Lot 1, is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 3. The jury determined she didn't commit the offense in the vicinity of a juvenile.

"We had made other purchases from her (involving) both adults and juveniles," said Hunker, whose department has been affiliated with METRICH since about 2002.

Terlizzi has been suspected of dealing marijuana from her mobile home since the end of 2005 or the beginning of 2006. "We received information that drugs were being sold there and some drugs were being brought to the village," the chief said.

Both Hunker and Huron County Sheriff's Capt. Bob McLaughlin testified for the state. At the end of 2005, McLaughlin said the sheriff's office started getting about 12 calls from park residents who "made complaints of drug trafficking throughout the park," specifically at Terlizzi's home.

"She was selling marijuana to young people in the Wakeman area," McLaughlin said. "The chief complaints were made through Chief Hunker."

Terlizzi called the allegations "a conspiracy thing." She wants to hire a professional to further evaluate the compact disc of the confidential informant's wire to determine "who was selling and not selling."

"A lot of it is inaudible," Terlizzi said. "I'm taking my gloves off. I'm going to be fighting."

Terlizzi was arrested on a warrant May 11, 2006 by McLaughlin and charged with trafficking in marijuana.

One of the suspects in the Terlizzi case was Keith A. Wilhelm, formerly of 3033 U.S. 250, Greenwich. In August 2006, Wilhelm, now 20, was sentenced to four months in the Huron County Jail and three years of probation for two counts of trafficking in marijuana.

Terlizzi was released Oct. 30 from the Huron County Jail after posting a $500 bond on a driving under the influence (DUI) charge.

Trooper Dan Dubelko stopped her Oct. 25 on U.S. 20 near the Lorain County line on a equipment violation. The trooper charged her with DUI after recognizing an "odor of alcohol" and Terlizzi took several sobriety tests, Lt. Jim Bryan said.
