Man changes plea in heroin case

One of 20 people charged with crimes associated with heroin sales within the city changed his plea yesterday in U.S. District Court in Toledo.

Juan Gonzales, Jr. pleaded guilty per a negotiated agreement to a narcotics conspiracy charge. Two counts each of possession with intent to distribute heroin and unlawful use of a communication facility will be dismissed. Judge Jack Zouhary set a Feb. 6 sentencing date.

Gonzales was arrested May 10. Investigators said he was one of several defendants that trafficked more than 20 kilograms of heroin, with an $11 million street value, into Toledo. The plea is the first in the case involving 19 co-defendants.
