Huntington Man Pleads Guilty to Intent to Distribute Heroin, Cocaine, Oxycodone
At the plea hearing, Tucker, who at the time of his arrest was on federal supervision for a bank robbery conviction, also admitted that traveling to Florida without permission and buying illegal drugs violated the terms of his supervised release.
Tucker, faces up to 20 years imprisonment, a $1,000,000.00 fine on the drug possession charge and an additional 2 years imprisonment for violating the terms of his supervised release. He is scheduled to be sentenced on July 28, 2014.
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 and heroin. 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 and heroin in communities across the Southern District.
