LEBANON, Ohio (AP) - A Warren County teenager considered by authorities to be one of the most prolific drug dealers in the Cincinnati area has been sentenced to between six months and three years in a juvenile prison.
Tyler Pagenstecher of Mason was sentenced in juvenile court Monday stemming from his guilty plea in July to drug-trafficking charges. Whether he stays in prison longer than six months depends on his behavior.
Authorities say Pagenstecher, who turned 18 earlier this month, played a major role in the ring that sold as much as $20,000 worth of high-grade marijuana a month to fellow students in and around his well-to-do suburb.
Authorities say that Pagenstecher took orders from adults who led the drug ring but was in charge of six teenage "lieutenants" who helped sell the pot.
