Dylan T.K. Mundy could have faced four to six months in a locked-down substance abuse treatment facility.

Instead, the 21-year-old Omega Road, Greenwich, man told the judge he'd prefer to spend six months in prison. That's the minimum time Mundy could have faced for his trafficking in heroin conviction.

"He advised me he wouldn't do well on supervised probation," David Longo, interim Huron County public defender, told the court. "Normally, my job is to keep clients out of prison."

Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway said he originally thought time in a community-based corrections facility would be appropriate for Mundy.

However, before Wednesday's sentencing hearing, the judge said he was told by Longo that Mundy "wouldn't do well" on probation and he didn't want to be under community control sanctions.

As part of a joint recommendation between Longo and Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff, Mundy agreed to forfeit $526 in cash and a handgun that was seized during a heroin investigation.

"I think the sale and the firearm were separate. ... It was in there (but wasn't) part of the execution of the search warrant," Woodruff said.

Longo agreed, saying the firearm was in the apartment, but wasn't used when Norwalk police used the warrant. Mundy was outlawed from owning, possessing or touching the weapon because of a 2009 trafficking in marijuana conviction.

Mundy was arrested Sept. 5 at a Norwalk apartment where he was living at the time after Detective Sgts. Seth Fry and Jim Fulton used a warrant related to the sale of heroin. The investigation started four days earlier.

The detectives seized the handgun, a marijuana pipe, syringe, a used heroin balloon, some new balloons, a small piece of aluminum suspected of being used to store heroin and $526 in cash. Fry has said he also found marijuana-related growing lights inside a closet in the efficiency apartment.

On Jan. 6, Mundy pleaded guilty to trafficking in heroin in exchange for prosecutors agreeing to dismiss one count of possession of weapons under disability.

Also Wednesday, Mundy was fined $250 and ordered to reimburse the Norwalk Police Department $40 to cover the cost of drug testing.

What a loser!!!! Doubt that prison will help either! Once a junkie always a junkie!! And by the wonderful example his mother is making for him I'm sure his life will always be a mess!!

A.W.U

I feel that yes,he knows it will be easier to get dope in the prison then the rehab. @ Zoeygirl4.stereotyping is a terrible trait to have. Your comment about once a junkie/addict always one.. sister your dead wrong!

truckin

He knows he won't be reformed.. Smart move for a guy like that.. Do the time and be done.. That way when you do get in trouble/caught for wrong doing, you only have 1 crime to answer to. Not the new crime/violation and the other convictions time hanging over your head..This is not uncommon, just not made public that much.. Everyone wants to hear about there tax money going for good and helping. Not cold hard facts. Some just won't be saved..but continually wasting your tax money. Fact our cops, courts and judges need these kind of people to keep there staff (budget) growing.

Norwalkconcerned

This guy just got into a fight, and someone beat him up. he is nothing but trouble. he needs to stay in prison. he is well known by everyone, for he is just wanting to go to prison, so when he gets out he can get back into what he was doing before

zoeygirl4

In this case its not a stereotype! Sorry you feel that way A.W.U. Wasn't referred to all, just the ones that are known on a personal reference that are a proven loser at every chance and not willing to get real help. Congrats to you for being clean!

amandakreps

stereotype: a simplified and standardized conception or image invested with special meaning and held in common by members of a group. That's exactly what you are doing. Instead of acting like you do no wrong, why don't you say a prayer for him and keep your mouth shut.

Uputwhatwhere6

Because he is a POS that deserves what he gets. Keep your mouth shut, what are you like 13?

amandakreps

Yes, I’m the 13 year old. The calm intellect proving points and someone cant take it. ;) it's sweet how much of a reaction I can get out of people like you exercising their right to hide. Have a good day, I know I will. Jesus loves you, everyone else thinks you're an a$$hole.

Uputwhatwhere6

LOL! Thank-you very much! I just think your a moron defending a worthless low-life scum that is a waste of space on this earth that would have more value as fertilizer and be more productive for society. But what do I know? You crack me up!

Blue Moon

So sick of everyone always giving a realitive grief over trying to defend someone they love. It doesn't matter if that said realitive obviously has problems, it doesn't give perfect strangers the right to tell his sister that he would be better off as fertilizer. You are all just a bunch of hateful, judgemental bullies.

Most Wanted

Re-read the comments Blue Moon...not one commenter gave her grief over defending a relative. The "grief", as you put it, is her "demand" for real names...then her lovely comments of "I will pray for you...but you are an as*"! She is just getting back what she so likes to give. LOL, why don't you give your real name in a comments column on an article that has to do with a heroin dealer that oh by the way had a gun that he is by law not allowed to have..because you know he will never have one again and is going to come out of prison this time as an upstanding citizen. Come on, give your name...you go first!

Kottage Kat

Amanda, please do not use Jesus and curse words in the same sentence, it does not validate your creditability (sp). And I will be praying for Dylan. If you are not ashamed of your name, don't tell a fib about your age--------> You are such a pretty lady, until all that ugly spills out of your mouth.
Just being honest wid ya. Kat

swiss family

Cat Please do NOT pull the "Jesus" card and all of your Pius and Holy routine, especially after you belittled her and her family and even named names of relatives... just sayin

Kottage Kat

@ Swiss, You are a Hoot. And your reading comprehesion skills leave a lot to be desired. Nice try, it won't fly.

amandakreps

isnt she wonderful swiss? She's the kind of person who thinks she is here to be God. She judges everyone and flies off at the mouth as though she is better. bahahahahahahahaha. it can only make me laugh! This reason alone is why she has no one in her life and has to spend holidays with "friends" (aka people who feel bad for her)

Most Wanted

Jesus may love you amandakreps...but he sure isn't high fiving you. Calm intellect...not. Amusing...yes.

Kottage Kat

MW, Again, you are far more diplomatic than I. Know the lady, and what I said was true, she is very pretty till she opens her mouth and the ugly flys out. She is angry, and being a relative not objective perhaps. Kat

Most Wanted

LOL...you really know her! Mouthy little sh*t!

Kottage Kat

MW, Mrs. Kreps and I are NOT related, just for clarification.

Most Wanted

Dear Jesus, please help amandakreps to practice what she preaches and keep her mouth shut. Amen.

amandakreps

Zoey what's your real name?

truckin

Why do you need real names? I'll say stereotype use would not exist if there wasn't a high probability for accuracy to any conclusions.

amandakreps

I don't NEED real names, I want them. Because people hide behind their computers screens and talk about people as if they know them. Jesus is the only person to judge. It's ok though, because I know that. I will continue to pray for the people on here who have no insight into life and what it can be like. God Bless :)

LookingDown

You NEED them? Lol what ya going to do? Be the next loser in the NR? Lol are we really arguing with a 13 year old? Lmfao

Kottage Kat

Amanda Kreps,
You are welcomed, always glad to help a" friend". Kat

amandakreps

Truckin-an honest intellectual question for you : Is it accurate to say that because someone is black they will have a high probability to end up not working/on welfare? If yes, I would love for your REAL NAME to state that without shame. If we believe what we are saying and proud of it, why are hiding our identities?

Uputwhatwhere6

Because it's our right moron.

truckin

It is NOT an intellectual question it's a try and trap question.. If your against the president your a racist, against abortion, hate women rights.. Never ends. I bet you even feel i am a racist/homophobic because i am a white man who married a white women and only desire sex with a HER. as far as real name, only if you promise me a public, live debate, until then, blogs are for one's true feelings on a subject without fear of waking up one day with sliced tires.. Whoops there i go again with stereotyping

swiss family

unless and until either Cat or CliFF decide that you should not hide behind a screen name, then they will do everything possible to make sure that everyone knows who you are , where you work, where and when you went to school...etc....

truckin

Ya but they obviously never heard of the ol' saying.. One of these day's you will really tick someone off..Tempers are, at times, a hard thing to control.. Not saying just saying. and i really don't care much, anyone who knows me hasn't had a hard time figuring it out.but i am not afraid of most people causing destruction to one's person property.like the rot of this town wouldn't think twice because there is soooo much class warfare going on.. See i live in realville. People like cliffy and amber are just boring folks with no life and jealous, they want to insight violence so they can sit back and look clueless "I don't know what happened". they feed on thinking they can control. by inside info. My post are accurate to who i am. that burns cliff up that another trucker can be successful in life and still not look like a typical trkr... Whoops there i go steroetyping again.
