A convicted drug dealer is now out of prison and on three years of probation.

Former Norwalk resident Madison J. Moore, 27, was granted judicial release Thursday. As a condition of her community control sanctions, she must complete a four- to six-month term in a community-based corrections facility. A CBCF is a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education.

Moore also must pay a $5,000 fine and a $190 reimbursement to the Norwalk Police Department. 

In mid-April 2018, she was sentenced to 30 months in the Ohio Reformatory for Women. About two months earlier, Moore pleaded guilty to one count each of trafficking in 3-methylfentanyl in a school zone and trafficking in heroin. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed one charge of trafficking in heroin and two counts of trafficking in a counterfeit controlled substance.

In other hearings:

• Jocelyn D. Caudill, 39, of Clyde, was ordered Thursday to complete a four- to six-month term in a CBCF. Also during her three years of probation for permitting drug abuse, she must pay a $250 fine and a $40 reimbursement to Norwalk police.

• Jacob A. LeClair, 29, whose address was unavailable, pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of trafficking in drugs. He is out on bond and will be sentenced April 3.

• Salvador J. Lopez, 44, of Shelby, was fined $250 Thursday and ordered to pay a $100 reimbursement to the Willard Police Department. During his three years of probation, he faces a 90-day discretionary jail sentence; his probation officer can impose part or all of the time without a hearing. Lopez’s conviction was trafficking in heroin in a school zone.

• Heidi L. Shirk, 44, most recently of 101 Woodbine St., Willard, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of trafficking in drugs in the vicinity of a school in exchange for the dismissal of one charge of trafficking in drugs. She then was ordered to complete a four- to six-month term in a CBCF and reimburse the Willard Police Department $40 for lab testing during her three years of probation.
