After a three-day jury trial, a Batavia man faces sentencing after selling 13 bags of heroin laced with horse tranquilizer.

Wyoming County District Attorney Donald O'Geen says Bradley Broadbent, 37, was found guilty of third degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and third degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.

According to the DA, Broadbent sold the heroin laced with Xylazine to a confidential informant in the Village of Perry on January 14, 2016.

Broadbent was remanded without bail following his verdict and will face sentencing on February 23.

The DA says because Broadbent has a significant criminal history, both of the Class B felony convictions could result in a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison with three years of post-release supervision.
