CHARLESTON, W.Va. – U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin announced today that a Fayette County couple was sentenced to federal prison for selling oxycodone. Gary Stover, 34, of Kincaid, Fayette County, W.Va., was sentenced to three years and one month in federal prison. Stover previously pleaded guilty in November 2012 to distribution of oxycodone. Stover admitted that on March 21, 2012, he sold three 30-milligram oxycodone pills to an individual cooperating with law enforcement authorities. Stover further admitted that he is responsible for distributing a total of approximately 1000 30-milligram pills. Stover's co-defendant, Jamie L. Foster, 26, was sentenced today to three months in federal prison followed by nine months of home confinement for aiding and abetting the distribution of oxycodone. Foster previously pleaded guilty in October 2012. Foster admitted that on April 16, 2012, she sold two 30-milligram oxycodone pills to an individual cooperating with law enforcement authorities. Foster and Stover shared a residence near Kincaid, Fayette County, at the time the illegal pill transactions occurred.
Stover and Foster are the latest defendants to be sentenced this year in connection with an ongoing drug investigation in Fayette County, W.Va. Earlier this month, Kenneth James Taylor, 32, Page, Fayette County, W.Va., was sentenced to five years in federal prison for distribution of oxycodone. In January, Gerald Wayne Hopkins, 52, of Fayetteville, W.Va., was sentenced to three years' probation for cocaine distribution. Also in January, Michael Terry Coleman, 48, of Page, Fayette County, W.Va., was sentenced to two years in federal prison for selling oxycodone.
The West Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation conducted the investigations. Assistant United States Attorney John File handled the prosecutions. The sentences were imposed by United States District Judge John T. Copenhaver, Jr.
The cases were 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.
