VERNON —  As a Jennings Circuit Court jury considered the case of a Seymour man on trial for illegally selling drugs, the defendant was charged Wednesday with three new counts of dealing in prescription medications.

Edward C. Granger 27, of 1300 Jackson Park, Seymour, was formally charged with the Class A felony and two Class B felonies while inside the courthouse at Vernon, said Maj. Jerry Shepherd of the Jennings County Sheriff's Department.

The arrest warrant was the result of three separate cases where Granger sold prescription drugs, Shepherd said.

If convicted of the two counts of dealing in a Schedule 2 controlled substance and one count of dealing in a Schedule 3 controlled substance, Granger could face between 32 and 90 years behind bars, and face fines of up to $30,000.

As a result of guilty verdicts reached Wednesday after the jury deliberated less than two hours, Granger already is facing 12 to 40 years in prison after being convicted of dealing in Schedule 2 narcotics and conspiracy to deal in Schedule 2 narcotics.
