A former Norwalk resident will be sentenced exactly one year after she sold drugs to a confidential informant.
Ashley A. Amos, 31, now of 235 Fairfield Ave., Bellevue, pleaded guilty Tuesday to trafficking in oxycodone. The conviction is for a May 14 controlled drug buy coordinated by Norwalk Police Detective Sgt. Jim Fulton.
Amos faces six to 18 months behind bars when she is sentenced this May 14 in Huron County Common Pleas Court. Judge Jim Conway told her she could face a prison term because she had her bond revoked.
As part of a plea deal Tuesday, prosecutors dismissed one count of possession of heroin in connection with a Dec. 2 incident.
"There may be some (drug) residue cases in the pipeline. If that's reality, the state won't prosecute her on those charges," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.
On Feb. 25, Amos was one of four suspects arrested in about 6 1/2 hours on drug-related secret indictments. A grand jury issues a secret indictment when authorities believe the suspects might flee the area.
Detective Sgt. Seth Fry has said Amos sold prescription medication while she was under indictment on the heroin-possession case. During Tuesday's plea hearing, court officials said Amos is on non-reporting probation through Bellevue Municipal Court for unspecified cases filed in 2012 and 2013.
