A Rocky Mount man faces up to 80 years in prison after pleading guilty last week to cooking methamphetamine and selling cocaine.

Four additional drug charges against Jordan Scott Overstreet, 30, were dismissed as part of a plea agreement, according to prosecutor Robert Deatherage. Those charges included one count of distribution of meth, one count of possession of meth, one count of conspiracy to manufacture meth and one count of possession of ingredients to make meth.

The two distribution charges were the result of controlled buys of meth and cocaine on Sept. 9, 2013, arranged by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.

The additional charges were the result of a search at a residence on Tripple Creek Road on Oct. 12, 2013, Deatherage said.

Overstreet has a criminal record that includes three felony convictions, including a 2004 conviction of carnal knowledge of a child between the ages of 13 and 15.

A sentencing hearing for Overstreet is set for June 30 at 3:45 p.m. in Franklin County Circuit Court.
