Archbold Man Gets Jail With Work Release

Brandon Rivera, 25, Archbold, has been sentenced in connection with drug charges in Fulton County Common Pleas Court.

Rivera was originally indicted by a Fulton County grand jury on Aug. 17, 2015.

He was one of 19 people arrested in connection with an 18-month drug investigation conducted by the Multi-Area Narcotics Task Force, commonly known as the MAN Unit.

The grand jury handed down charges of trafficking in drugs and permitting drug abuse. A guilty plea was entered on his behalf in December.

Scott Haselman, Fulton County prosecuting attorney, said in a press release Rivera was sentenced Wednesday, March 2, on a single county of aggravated trafficking in drugs.

Haselman said on or about Nov. 14, 2013, Rivera sold or offered to sell Oxycodone, a prescription painkiller.

Rivera was ordered to serve 21 days at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio. He is allowed participation in the HITT program or work release.

He was also sentenced to two years of community control, and ordered to pay the cost of his prosecution, attorney fees, $50 in restitution to the MAN Unit, and a $250 fine.

Rivera was also ordered not to consume or possess alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs; not to enter bars or taverns; abide by an 11 pm to 6 am curfew; and complete drug-alcohol aftercare.

His driver license was suspended for six months, with occupational driving privileges.

Failure to comply with the conditions could result in a 12-month prison sentence.
