PARIS – Two men pleaded guilty Wednesday at Oxford County Superior Court to drug charges.

Jarrod Sawyer, 34, of 44 River Road in Buckfield pleaded guilty to Class B unlawful trafficking in scheduled drugs. The charge was amended to delete language from an indictment charging Sawyer with trafficking near a school.

Sawyer was accused of selling 3.5 grams of cocaine to an individual cooperating with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency in the parking lot of McDonald’s in Paris in August 2005.

According to court documents, Sawyer has prior convictions for trafficking and cultivating marijuana.

Sawyer’s sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 10. A Class B felony carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years.

David Robert Long, 28, of 59 Granite St., Mexico, pleaded guilty to stealing drugs and violating conditions of release. He was sentenced to nine months in jail. The sentence will run concurrent to a six-month sentence for a probation violation that Long is serving.

Long was accused of taking 16 hydrocodone pills from a prescription bottle he was delivering to a Rumford resident.
