Former Prison Employee Appears in Federal Court for Sexual Abuse of Inmate
Adam Ray Smith, 26, pled guilty to distribution of heroin. Smith admitted that on August 30, 2013, he distributed heroin to a person cooperating with law enforcement authorities. The transaction took place near Ronceverte. Smith further admitted that he distributed about 1000 packets of heroin, totaling about 48 grams, in Greenbrier County between May 2013 and August 2013. Smith faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1,000,000 fine when he is sentenced on November 13, 2014. This case was investigated by the Greenbrier Valley Drug and Violent Crime Task Force under the Greenbrier County Heroin and Pill Initiative. That initiative is part of an ongoing effort led by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia to combat the sale of heroin and the illicit sale of prescription drugs in communities across the Southern District. Assistant United States Attorney John File handled both cases.
