Youngstown man headed to prison on drug-related charges

Published: Wed, March 20, 2013 @ 6:26 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Dewaylyn Colvin, 31, said he entered the illicit world of illegal drug sales at the age of 13 as a means of supporting his family.

The result of that decision has landed him in prison for 11 years on drug-related charges.

Colvin, who has been incarcerated previously for involuntary manslaughter and other drug offenses, pleaded guilty to three counts of trafficking in drugs, possession of drugs, illegal possession of a weapon and engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity. The guilty pleas were part of a plea deal with prosecutors.

Colvin, with his attorneys Scott Cochran and Neal Atway, appeared today for sentencing on the charges before Judge Lou A. D’Apolito of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

The shame is that instead of being praised for helping to solve a murder he s probably put his life in danger by breaking the idiotic "no snitching" code.

Being poor is no excuse for becoming a drug dealer. It doesn't justify ruining other people's lives, and somehow make selling drugs seem OK.

He sold drugs for almost 18 years. Sorry, but I have no sympathy.
