Accused East Ridge drug dealer sentenced to jail
A teenager accused of selling drugs on East Ridge High School grounds was sentenced last month to 60 days in jail.
Erik D. Flanders, 19, was convicted and sentenced Feb. 21 on one count fifth-degree marijuana sales, a felony. Two more severe charges - third-degree narcotics sales and fourth-degree marijuana sales in a school zone - were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
The case was settled in January, just as it was about to go to jury trial.
