Dayton men enter pleas on drug charges

POINT PLEASANT — Two men from Dayton, Ohio, have entered into plea agreements after being indicted on drug charges last year.

Aaron L. Pooler Jr., 23 and Wallace Daredd Hailey, aka “Red,” 19, were each indicted by the September 2015 term of the Mason County grand jury for delivery of a controlled substance, three counts, and conspiracy, three counts.

Both men have filed plea agreements in circuit court, each stating they wished to plead guilty to the felony offense of delivery of a controlled substance, as contained in count five of the indictment. In exchange for their pleas of guilty on count five, the state was to move to dismiss the remaining counts. In addition to plea agreements, conviction orders have also been filed in these cases with both men being adjudged guilty of delivery of a controlled substance, according to documents found in the office of Circuit Court Clerk Bill Withers.

Pooler and Hailey are to reappear before Judge David W. Nibert for sentencing on these charges at 9:30 a.m., July 15.

The plea agreements for both men state, upon conviction, the possible sentence for delivery of a controlled substance is not less than one nor more than 15 years in jail, or fined not more than $25,000, or both.

In the indictment, count five accuses the two men of intentionally delivering heroin to another person on April 11, 2014. According to the official criminal complaint filed in Mason County Magistrate Court, this delivery happened in the Arbuckle District of Mason County. This investigation was lead by the Metro Drug Enforcement Network Team (MDENT).
