A Norwalk man has been convicted of dealing heroin.
Edward E. Blair, 37, of 52 W. League St., pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of trafficking in heroin. The fifth-degree felony conviction is for a March 8 controlled drug purchase.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors agreed to dismiss a second count of trafficking in heroin in connection with a March 12 incident.
Due to a prior felony conviction, Blair faces six to 12 months in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 8. He remains out on bond, having posted 10 percent of a $10,000 bail. Blair is subject to random drug screens.
This isn't the defendant's first conviction for selling drugs in Huron County.
In August 2010, he was sentenced to one year in prison for two counts of trafficking in cocaine and one charge of trafficking in oxycodone, according to Huron County Common Pleas Court records.
Blair, in mid-February 2003, was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for one count each of trafficking in drugs and possession of drugs.
In March 1996, prosecutors dismissed a robbery indictment filed against Blair in exchange for him pleading guilty to complicity to burglary, according to court records. He was sentenced to one year in prison.
