A Michigan man is facing up to 20 years in federal prison for dealing heroin in Charleston's East End. Darrell

Shawton Collins, 36, admitted in U.S. District Court in Charleston that he'd sold heroin to a police informant in December, U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said.

He said the drug deal took place at the corner of Washington Street East and Thompson.

At the time, Collins was on federal supervised release for a prior drug trafficking offense. Goodwin said his release was revoked after he entered his guilty plea.

Collins is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 14.

His case was investigated by Charleston police. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Rada is in charge of the prosecution.
