HAMILTON COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

An Indian Hill man facing charges in the death of a Terrace Park teen is free on bond Thursday.

Andrew Weber, 20, is accused of selling drugs to Collin Barton.

Back in March, Barton was hit and killed on Wooster Pike in the early morning hours of March 18.

Toxicology reports show that Barton had pot and psychedelic mushrooms in his system at the time he died.

Officers say Weber sold $80 worth of hallucinogenic mushrooms to Barton on March 17; the day before he died.

The prosecutor says Weber is also in trouble for allegedly selling marijuana to another teen on May 4 and 5, 2012.

Weber is also charged with having marijuana in his home prepared for distribution.

If convicted of all charges, Weber faces the possibility of seven years in prison.

On Wednesday,  the Hamilton County Prosecutor announced that the driver that hit Barton will not face any charges and that part of the investigation is closed.
