Walworth man receives probation for heroin possession

March 08, 2012

On March 8, a 54-year-old Walworth man was sentenced to two years of probation after he pleaded guilty of possession of heroin with intent to deliver.

Steven D. Adams, 124 Plafield Ct., Apt. A, received a withheld sentence, which means if he violates the terms of his probation the judge can give him a new sentence.

Adams also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the criminal complaint:

On March 24, deputies from the Walworth County Drug Unit stopped a vehicle driven by Adams near highways 14 and 67. Adams allowed police to search him for weapons.

During the search, police found paraphernalia used to inject heroin.

Inside of Adams' pocket, police found 14 capsules of heroin. Adams said he had people who were expecting him to provide them with the drug.
