A man already on supervised release for a prior drug and firearm conviction. pleaded guilty  to selling heroin earlier this year.

 

Quientn J. Parker, 31, admitted on February 6 he directed a confidential informant to come to a parking lot in the 200 block of 4th Avenue in Huntington to purchase heroin.  Once the informant arrived, Parker entered the informant’s vehicle and sold the informant heroin. 

At the time of the offense, Parker was serving a term of supervised release based on convictions he received in 2011 for distributing crack cocaine and being a felon in possession of a firearm.   

“A repeat offender,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart in a press release. “Parker was still under federal supervision for previous offenses when he was caught distributing heroin.  Now he’ll be going back to federal prison.”

Parker faces up to 20 years in prison when sentenced on January 27 for the heroin distribution, and an additional 24 months for violating the terms of his supervised release.   

The Drug Enforcement Administration conducted the investigation.   United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers presided over the hearing.  Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Adams is handling the prosecution.
