LEBANON, Ohio (WDTN/AP) - A 17-year-old southwestern Ohio high school student accused of being a "drug czar" with six lieutenants reportedly admitted to two counts of drug trafficking in Warren County juvenile court Tuesday.
The teenager had a choice of admitting to or denying the drug trafficking charges against him. Those options are the juvenile court's version of pleading guilty or not guilty.
The Warren County Drug Task Force says the teen was part of a high-grade homegrown marijuana operation that sold as much as $20,000 worth of the drug monthly to high school students in two Cincinnati-area schools.
Adults in the area are accused of leading the drug ring, while the teen is accused of operating as a lower-ranking accomplice with six teens near his age reporting to him.
