A former New Yorker was sentenced to two years in prison Thursday for selling heroin last July in Augusta.

Devin Jarrell Jackson, 26, pleaded guilty Thursday at the Capital Judicial Center to one charge of unlawful trafficking that occurred July 11, 2016, in Augusta, and the state dismissed two additional trafficking charges as part of a plea deal.

The prosecutor, Assistant District Attorney Tyler LeClair, said Jackson sold heroin to a confidential informant who was working with the Kennebec Sheriff’s Office.

Jackson was arrested in August during a traffic stop on South Beach Hill Road in Pittston.
