A Zanesville man faces up to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to drug charges Monday in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court.

29-year-old Justin Adams pleaded guilty to four counts of third-degree-felony trafficking in cocaine, one count of first-degree-felony trafficking in cocaine with a juvenile specification, and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Adams was arrested last December after the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office conducted a drug bust at 1262 Central Avenue.

Assistant Muskingum County Prosecutor Ron Welch says Adams faces up to 30 years in prison.

Judge Kelly Cottrill ordered a pre-sentence investigation. Adams remains in the Muskingum County Jail.
