MOUNT VERNON — A Mount Vernon man is not likely to see the inside of a prison after selling synthetic drugs out of a storefront on Public Square for at least five months in 2016.
Timothy J. Carrico, 31, pleaded no contest Tuesday in Knox County Common Pleas Court to one count of permitting drug abuse, a fifth-degree felony. The charge states that between April 8, 2016, to Oct. 3, 2016, Carrico allowed trafficking of synthetic drugs out of his business, Waking Dreams, located at 37 Public Square, Mount Vernon.
Carrico pleaded to the charge in a bill of information. By pleading to the bill, possible, additional charges will not be brought before the grand jury.
