WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - A Cleveland man has pleaded guilty to distributing heroin mixed with fentanyl in Ohio County, West Virginia.

According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of West Virginia, Shawn McClain admitted selling the heroin within 1,000 feet of Madison Elementary School.

He pleaded guilty on Thursday to three charges. A charge of distributing heroin and fentanyl and a second conspiracy charge each carry a maximum sentence of twenty years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million. A charge of distribution near a protected location carries a sentence of up to forty years and a $2 million fine.

The actual sentence will be based on the seriousness of the crime and any prior criminal history.
