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.
