BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

A Bay City man was sentenced to 262 months in prison by a federal judge on Thursday.

Joshua Edmond Klosowski, 27, had previously pleaded guilty to a heroin trafficking conspiracy charge following a plea agreement. That plea agreement allowed Klosowski to avoid a potential life sentence.

The 22-year sentence was also based on Klosowski's extensive criminal history.

As a part of his guilty plea, Klosowski acknowledged that he resumed trafficking drugs immediately upon his release from state custody in 2010 for earlier drug convictions.

While still on parole for the prior offences, Klosowski traveled to Detroit, Lansing and Saginaw to buy heroin, then returned to Bay City to sell it to several customers in Bay County.

Klosowski was arrested in May of 2012 after having made a heroin purchase for himself. At the time of his arrest, he was preparing to inject himself with heroin while behind the wheel of a vehicle occupied by his 10-month-old son.

During sentencing, Klosowski told the court that his drug addiction led him to drug trafficking.

This case was solved with help from the FBI and the Mid-Michigan Safe Streets Task Force.
