Accused oxycodone dealer has time to accept plea deal – Norwalk Reflector

Willard man has until last day of year.

Joseph D. Albright didn’t take a prosecutor’s plea deal. But he still has time.

Albright, 37, most recently of 791 W. U.S. 224, Willard, has until the morning of Dec. 31 to accept a plea agreement.

Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway didn’t say what Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler offered the defendant and his public defender, David Longo. Conway said the attorneys worked on a plea deal Monday, but weren’t able to come to an agreement.

The suspect is charged with two counts of trafficking in oxycodone in connection with incidents on Feb. 22 and 27. The Willard Police Department coordinated the controlled drug buys.

Albright’s two-day trial is scheduled to start Jan. 6. When asked about having jurors view the suspected crime scene, Leffler said it’s “conceivable (since) these were open-air transactions.”

Albright posted a $5,000 bond with a 10-percent provision. He is subject to random drug screens.
