Charleston Man Pleads Guilty to Heroin Sales
During his guilty plea, Williams admitted that in September of 2013, he sold heroin in Charleston to an individual who was working as a confidential informant (CI) for the Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team (MDENT). In return for the heroin, Williams received $100. Williams also admitted that he had sold heroin to the CI in Charleston on two other occasions.
Williams faces up to 20 years imprisonment when he is sentenced on October 23, 2014.
This case was investigated by MDENT. Assistant United States Attorney Monica D. Coleman 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 pills 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 heroin and pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of opiate painkillers and heroin in communities across the Southern District.
