Youngstown man guilty on charges

WARREN — A Youngstown man pleaded guilty Monday to four felony charges, while prosecutors dropped four other charges.

Rashaughn A. Norman, 21, 45 E. Midlothian Blvd., will undergo a background report before Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge Peter J. Kontos pronounces Norman’s sentence.

Norman, who pleaded guilty to charges of trafficking in cocaine (two counts), receiving stolen property and weapons under disability, faces a maximum seven years in prison.

Prosecutors said Norman was arrested in April after he sold drugs to an undercover informant. A raid later in Liberty Township turned up six grams of cocaine and a stolen .357-caliber revolver.
