Fostoria man will be behind bars 22 years


TIFFIN — A Fostoria man was sentenced to 22 years in prison for selling large amounts of cocaine in Tiffin, Fostoria, and Findlay.

Charles V. Richardson, 35, pleaded no contest Thursday to two counts of trafficking in cocaine in Seneca County Common Pleas Court where Judge Michael Kelbley found him guilty and imposed mandatory, consecutive, 11-year prison terms for each count.

Arrested earlier this year after selling drugs to a confidential informant, Richardson was part of a drug distribution ring that brought cocaine from Toledo to Seneca County, according to the Ohio Attorney General’s Special Prosecutions Section.
