A Rocky Mount man faces up to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty last week in Franklin County Circuit Court to selling 0.55 grams of methamphetamine for $100.
A second charge of meth distribution against William Edward Milton, 32, was dismissed through a plea agreement, according to prosecutor Cooper Brown.
The drug buys were arranged by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, Brown said. The controlled purchases were made from Milton at a location on Greers Park Drive on Nov. 11, 2013, and Dec. 13, 2013.
A sentencing hearing for Milton is set for Sept. 22 at 3:15 p.m. in circuit court.
