An Old Hickory man was sentenced in Wilson County criminal court Wednesday for the sale of Schedule II drugs in Mt. Juliet.

Justin Monet Majors, 27, was sentenced to 90 days in jail for selling oxymorphone to a confidential informant.

Majors accepted a plea deal for a four-year suspended sentence with 90 days to serve in jail.

The incident happened Jan. 28. According to court testimony, a confidential informant told officers about a drug dealer, and the police set up a sting operation.

Police gave the informant money to make a purchase. When the purchase was to be made, the drug dealer told the confidential informant that he needed to wait for his supplier, Majors, to arrive.

Majors arrived in a blue SUV with the drugs and the purchase was completed. Mt. Juliet police later arrested Majors and the drug dealer, and both were charged separately with the sale of Schedule II drugs.

As part of his sentencing, Majors will be required to pay $800 in damages to the Mt. Juliet Police Department.
