A convicted heroin dealer was sentenced Monday to 90 days in the Huron County Jail for violating his probation.
After David Fuentes Janer, 37, of Lorain, finishes his jail term, he will be kicked off probation for unsuccessfully completing his community control sanctions. The sentence started Thursday.
The defendant, at Monday's hearing, admitted he changed his residence about Aug. 2. Since July 30, Janer also failed to show up for probation office visits.
His conviction is attempted trafficking in heroin for an April 19, 2012 incident when he brought heroin from Lorain.
On Aug. 7, 2012, Janer was sentenced to 120 days in jail and credited with already serving 111 days. The defendant, whose driver's license was suspended for six months, was fined $250 and ordered to reimburse the Huron County Sheriff's Office $40 to cover the cost of drug testing.
After Janer was released from jail, probation officer Dexter Chandler said he tried to locate Janer and when he turned himself in, Janer told him he went to Puerto Rico to visit his father who was sick.
"I commended him for turning himself in. Most people don't do that; they wait for law enforcement to catch up with them," Chandler told the judge.
