HART — A 33-year-old Muskegon man faces an eight-and-a-half month jail term after pleading guilty to a felony count of delivery of heroin/less than 50 grams in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Dec. 21.

Tommy Watts testified Monday that he sold heroin to someone at the Rothbury Wesco last March.

In exchange for his guilty plea, a second count was dismissed. Watts’ plea agreement calls for an eight-and-a-half month cap on his jail time. The court will also impose sanctions on his driver’s license as part of his sentence.

Watts was arrested last October by the State, Sheriffs’, Chiefs’ Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT) on a two-count felony warrant at the Muskegon County Jail, where he was serving time on an unrelated charge.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 1 at 9 a.m.
