Shortly after the text message was sent, Sizemore sold heroin to a confidential informant working with law enforcement.  Sizemore faces up to four years in prison and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced on October 8, 2015.

Two additional drug defendants from Huntington, West Virginia were also sentenced today in Beckley federal court. Randolph Ingram, 55, was sentenced to four years in prison for using a communication facility to facilitate a felony, and Rachel Jade Corrigan, 26, was sentenced to three years of probation for aiding and abetting the distribution of heroin.  Ingram and Corrigan pled guilty in February of 2015.  Ingram admitted using a telephone to help arrange the sale of heroin in Lewisburg, and Corrigan admitted that after the Ingram sold the heroin, she concealed the money in her underwear to take it to Huntington.
