Undercover Drug Bust

Mom blames undercover agent's 'feminine wile' for enticing son to sell drugs

The mother of a 17-year-old boy charged with drug trafficking criticized police for using a female undercover agent posing as a student to sway her son into setting up a marijuana buy.

The boy -- the first of 16 Milford High School students in Batavia charged in the undercover operation -- pleaded guilty yesterday in Clermont County Juvenile Court. The students allegedly sold marijuana, hallucinogenic mushrooms, Ecstasy and the prescription anti-seizure medication Konopin to the agent since school started in August.

The 17-year-old's attorney agreed with his mother, saying he was taken in by the feminine wile. Batavia Police Chief Steve Bailey says that's like saying, "The Devil made me do it."
