Man gets 5 years for heroin trafficking
YOUNGSTOWN — A city man convicted of distributing heroin throughout the local area will spend the next five years behind bars — an amount of time that did not make the judge happy.
A seemingly emotional Hasson “Haus” Floyd, 29, of Manhattan Avenue appeared before Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge R. Scott Krichbaum early Friday asking the court to show leniency in his sentencing for trafficking in heroin and participating in a pattern of corrupt activity.
Floyd originally faced up to 24 years in prison, but reached a plea agreement where he would face no more than eight years in prison upon pleading guilty to the charges.
