Windham heroin dealer gets 1 year in prison

By Dave O'Brien | staff writer Published:

A Windham teen will serve prison time for selling heroin to undercover police officers in October 2012. The sentence is his second felony drug trafficking conviction in a year.

Portage County Common Pleas Judge Laurie Pittman recently sentenced Charles D. Jordan Jr., 19, with a last known address of 9145 Maple Grove Road, to one year in prison. He was given credit for 54 days already served in the Portage County jail awaiting trial.

Jordan pleaded guilty in December to trafficking in heroin, a third-degree felony. According to the drug task force, Jordan sold between one and five grams of heroin on Oct. 11 and Oct. 22, 2012, both times in the vicinity of a juvenile.

He was one of more than 30 people rounded up on open warrants by the drug task force and Portage County sheriff's deputies on Nov. 2, 2012.

At the time, Jordan was serving five years probation on a cocaine trafficking conviction from July 2012. Pittman subsequently ordered Jordan to spend 90 additional days in the Portage County jail for violating his probation on that conviction, according to court records.

  • ok this guy has already been on probation for selling cocaine So now the drug of choice is heroin and he gets 1 year minus the time served Seems that we should leave him and alot of his dealer friends locked up and maybe heroin wouldnt be killing so many people

  • I think Judge Pittman coulda bought "h" off this character. I wonder how many of the "30" people that were rounded up actually were convicted? blowpop, Aurora? they have drugs down there? I have never heard of a drug agent from Aurora making a drug arrest in that town! I think the Chief of Aurora should consider some other options. Seems to be a waste of over $100,000.00 a year to have a drug agent assigned to the task force? The Chief from Aurora will definately reconsider when a nice civil suit is applied to his department because of the inneptness of the Commander ("LYIN Limbert) and Major "CHAOS" Kelly!

  • Its great to finally read about someone going to prison for actually selling a hard drug. Unlike a pot grower or some guy mixing up chemicals in his closet. The sheriffs dept may finally be on to something with this!!

  • LIKE FATHER LIKE SON! THE CRACK ROCK DON'T FALL FAR FROM THE PIPE!!

  • The pervert from Randolph only got probation for perving a 13 year old girl. Nothing like good ole Portage County Justice.

  • Bwahhh what a joke it's all becoming!!

  • I've been an aurora resident for about 5 years now and not once have I read about nor heard of any drug bust or drug task force activity at all!!!! Why not? Who do I contact to discuss this problem?

  • WARNING WARNING IF YOU GET BUSTED BY THE DRUG TASK FORCE TAKE YOUr CASE TO TRIAL!!! IVE HEARD THAT THERE ARE MANY LOOP HOLES AND MISTAKES THROUGH OUT THE RECENT CASES! LAWYER UP TAKE NO DEALS AND NO SNITCHING!!!!
