D. Walker D. Walker Two Fulton County men are tentatively slated to be sentenced later this summer after having entered pleas last week to delivery of a controlled substance.

Daniel J. Walker of Burnt Cabins and McConnellsburg resident Aaron Edward Hahn appeared before Fulton County Court of Pleas President Judge Carol L. Van Horn on Tuesday, July 14, for call of the criminal trial list. As a result of the pleas entered, both men will be sentenced August 18 following the completion of presentence investigation reports by the Fulton County Probation Department.

Walker of 234 Grist Mill Road pleaded guilty to one count of delivery of a controlled substance as well as an additional count of possession of a controlled substance. The maximum combined sentence in the case is 16 years incarceration and $255,000 in fines.

Charges against the 43-yearold stem from the alleged sale of heroin to a confidential informant on October 27, October 29 and November 10, 2014. The drug deliveries, which included the exchange of $300 in state police funds, occurred at Walker’s Dublin Township residence twice and in a vehicle operated by Walker, investigating Pennsylvania State Police officers reported.

Meanwhile, Hahn pleaded “no contest” to delivery of a controlled substance, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $15,000 in fines.

Charges against Hahn of 527 Crossroads Road were filed by state police in Hollidaysburg in connection with an alleged incident at 100 West Poplar Street last fall. According to an affidavit of probable cause, a confidential informant contacted Hahn on November 6, 2014, on a state police officer’s cellphone.

The state police officer reportedly drove the informant to the Poplar Street address and parked in a large parking area outside the brown-colored residence. Hahn, police said, walked out of the home carrying a yellow plastic shopping bag that contained one-quarter ounce of suspected marijuana, which was exchanged behind a wooden fence for $80 in confidential state funds.
