The terms of the plea deal include a recommendation by the prosecutor for two years in prison, two years of post-release supervision, the suspension of Yetsko’s driver’s license and the forfeiture of phone and cash seized at the scene. He could have faced up to nine years in prison.

Yetsko was one of five people arrested in late November as part of a heroin and cocaine drug bust by the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office and state officials.

He was taken into custody on the 100 block of Honness Lane.

The other men arrested include:

— Naquan Stevenson, 27, of Brooklyn, who pled guilty to felony fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance for heroin on June 5.

— Javaun Delfyette, 29, of Brooklyn, who pled guilty to felony third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance on June 5.

— Jovon Monk, of Ithaca, who was arrested for criminal possession of a controlled substance.

— Lawrence Haskins, who had been living in Trumansburg, was wanted for violation of parole in California and has been sent back there for prosecution.

Police found about $1,500 worth of heroin and crack cocaine and $695 in cash during the drug bust.
