Ohio teen faces charges in multi-million dollar drug ring

WARREN COUNTY, Ohio. -- A high school senior accused of playing a key part in a $3 million marijuana ring faces three years in juvenile prison.

Police say he sold marijuana for nearly three years and was the main or a significant source for delivering pot to students in two Ohio school districts.

He's suspected of dealing about $20,000 worth of drugs each month. Investigators say he had at least half dozen current and former students working under him.

“This is a very intelligent young man,” said Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell. “He is, as I described earlier, very misguided in what he was putting his efforts towards. Whatever punishment the court levies will put him on the right path and that ultimately, somebody like this who is this intelligent can use those efforts to benefit society.

The judge ordered random drug screenings for the teen and put him on house arrest.
