BECKLEY, W.Va. – U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin announced that a Tennessee man was sentenced to seven years and three months in federal prison for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone. 
 
Doneven S. Bailey Jr., 49, of Chattanooga, Tenn., admitted that from June 8, 2011 until February 3, 2012, he conspired with a known associate to illegally distribute oxycodone pills in and around Beaver, Raleigh County, W.Va. 
 
Bailey further admitted that on several occasions, he and his associate transported oxycodone pills from the Chattanooga, Tennessee area to sell in and around Beaver, W.Va.  Bailey also admitted that his associate's vehicle was used to transport the oxycodone pills from Chattanooga to a motel in Beaver, W.Va. 
 
Bailey admitted that on two occasions on February 3, 2012, individuals cooperating with law enforcement authorities obtained 50 30-milligram oxycodone pills from him and his associate while inside of their rented motel room in Raleigh County, W.Va. 
 
On February 3, 2012, law enforcement agents executed a search warrant at the defendant's motel room and seized a quantity of oxycodone pills and buy money that was used during prior controlled drug transactions. 
 
Bailey admitted that he is responsible for distributing a total of 3200 30-milligram oxycodone pills over an eight-month period.
     
This case was 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.
 
The Raleigh County Sherriff's Department conducted the investigation.  Assistant United States Attorney John File handled the prosecution.  The sentence was imposed by United States District Judge Irene C. Berger.
