A Norwalk man has pleaded guilty to selling oxycodone to a confidential informant.

Cody J. Jenkins, 22, of 408 S. Old State Road, Apt. 31, will be sentenced April 2. He was convicted of one count of trafficking in oxycodone in exchange for prosecutors dismissing a second, similar charge.

The Huron County Sheriff's Office coordinated the controlled drug buy.

Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said deputies received information from a confidential informant "who was familiar with the defendant." He said the informant later picked up Jenkins, who told her to drive to Mill Street Bistro, where the defendant got out of the car, went to another house and returned to the vehicle with six Oxycodone pills.

Jenkins sold five of the pills to the informant, Leffler said, "and kept one pill for himself." The prosecutor said the transaction happened while deputies kept surveillance.

The defendant earlier posted 10 percent of a $5,000 bond. Jenkins is subject to random drug screens.

"Good kids" DON'T TRAFFIC DRUGS. I know all I need to know about him.

I won't judge him. This should not be in the paper yet. This headline is appauling and disgraceful. Is this it? Is this the mastermind of the oxy problem? 6 pills & a kid?

So the drug task force sets up a buy with a girl that they pinched for something smaller & dumber than this....this kid has got the hots for her & will do whatever he can....she approaches him with a plan (so she can stay out of jail). When the dust settles, the guy down on Mill St. is still in business?

I am glad this worked out so well for the community to have kept such a kingpin off the streets. I feel so much safer now. I'm sure the family of this kid is glad it worked out like this too, after all, who doesn't want their family name associate with "oxy dealer". I hope the authorities confiscated all of his cars and property.

I don't know the kid or the family, he messed up. Just seems like things could have gone a different way. LIKE AN ACTUAL ARREST.

Don't judge him? Really? What could you possibly know about him that would make this justifiable? Yep, he is a good kid. So good he got caught dealing prescription pills.

The house is on fire and we choose to pour a 1/2 cup of water on the door mat.
