A Hilliards man pleaded guilty to conspiracy to heroin distribution in Butler County Court on Wednesday.

Joshua L. Pisor, 29, entered a guilty plea to felony conspiracy to drug delivery before county Judge William Shaffer.

The plea agreement calls for a sentence of 11 to 23 months in Butler County Prison, as well as fines, when he is sentenced on Sept. 21.

Pisor was initially charged with felony possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance and illegally possessing a firearm following an incident that allegedly occurred on June 15, 2015.

State police in Butler allege that Pisor was helping his father, Richard H. Pisor Jr., distribute narcotics out if his Stalker Road home, where he was living at the time.

A search of the home turned up 179 stamp bags of heroin and 578 prescription pills that were stashed in a vinyl cooler, police said. A rifle was also found under a bed in the home's basement where Joshua Pisor was living. Because of a 2007 conviction for burglary, he is barred by state law from possessing any firearms.

Richard Pisor was arrested immediately after the search of his home in June 2015. He subsequently pleaded guilty to heroin trafficking and in 2016 was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in state prison.

He is currently serving his term at the State Correctional Institution-Laurel Highlands.

A full report will appear in the Butler Eagle.
