A Wabash man was sentenced in Marshall County Superior Court 1 on Thursday after previously pleading guilty to a Class B felony charge of Dealing in a Narcotic Drug.
Judge Robert O. Bowen accepted the plea agreement between the state and the attorney for Nathan Harrison, 23, and sentenced Harrison to ten years in the Indiana Department of Corrections. The agreement included a recommendation of intense drug rehabilitation treatment through incarceration.
Harrison admitted in a previous court setting that he possessed 68 grams of heroin as he was passing through the Plymouth area on Oct. 4, 2013. A Marshall County Sheriff’s deputy stopped Harrison’s vehicle that day for an equipment violation and a Plymouth K9 indicated to the presence of narcotics. At the time, Harrison and the passenger in the car denied that any narcotics were in the vehicle. Narcotics weren’t found in the vehicle, but 162 small packets of a white powdery substance that later tested positive as heroin were found in Harrison’s pants.
