A Beloit heroin dealer was sentenced to federal prison Thursday, according to a release.
Jylon Turner, 21, was sentenced to 42 months in federal prison and a three-year term of supervised release for delivering heroin on April 2, officials said. Turner pleaded guilty to the charge on Aug. 6.
In April, an informant told Beloit police that Turner was selling heroin, according to a release. The informant agreed to work with the police and make a controlled purchase of heroin from Turner. The informant purchased 0.513 grams of heroin from Turner on April 2, and 0.769 grams of heroin on April 3.
The charge for the April 3 delivery was dismissed as part of a plea agreement, officials said.
Turner is classified as a career offender because he has a prior felony conviction for burglary and for possession of THC with intent to deliver, according to the release. Turner was 16 years old when he was convicted for the THC charge.
