MASON, Ohio (AP) -- One of the biggest drug dealers in the Cincinnati area was led into court this week. He didn't exactly look like a tough guy.
He was skinny, pale, bespectacled, dressed in a blue buttoned-down shirt and khakis -- and just 17 years old.
Three weeks before he was supposed to start his senior year in high school, Tyler Pagenstecher pleaded guilty to drug-trafficking charges in juvenile court.
Police say he played a major role in a drug ring that sold as much as $20,000 worth of high-grade marijuana a month to fellow students at two high schools.
He could be ordered held until he turns 21.
