Huntington Woman Pleads Guilty to Federal Drug Charges
In August of 2013, agents searched multiple locations associated with this drug conspiracy and recovered more than 140 grams of heroin, 974 oxycodone pills and $12,000 in cash.
As part of her plea agreement, Mattison admitted her role in the drug conspiracy with Gulley and Helen Louise Adkins, and also admitted that she sold heroin for Gulley. Gulley pleaded guilty on January 21, 2013, for his involvement in the drug conspiracy.
Mattison faces up to 20 years in federal prison, and is scheduled to be sentenced on April 28, 2014.
The Drug Enforcement Administration and Huntington Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Adams 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.
