Huntington Woman Enters Guilty Plea in Drug Scheme
Hamlett told police that during the conspiracy, she provided residences for her associates to store and sell drugs. She also told police that firearms were kept at the residences.
Hamlett faces up to 20 years in federal prison when she is sentenced on February 24, 2014.
The Huntington Violent Crimes and Drug Task Force conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Gregory McVey is in charge of the prosecution.
This case is being prosecuted as part of an ongoing effort led by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia to combat the illicit sale and misuse of prescription drugs. The U.S. Attorney’s Office, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively pursuing and shutting down illegal pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of opiate painkillers in communities across the Southern District.
