Couldn’t find a job, so he sold drugs

When Symeon Bankston got out of prison the last time for dealing drugs, he asked friends for help in finding a job.

All they could offer him was the chance to deal more drugs, Bankston, 32, said just before he was sentenced to four years in prison Thursday on two separate drug trafficking charges.

“When I asked for help, they offered me crack,” Bankston told Judge Maureen Sweeney in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court. “The only thing I could get was to sell drugs, drugs, drugs.”

Bankston had pleaded guilty in two separate cases to charges of possession of heroin and possession of cocaine.
