BECKLEY, W.Va. (News Release) – United States Attorney Booth Goodwin announced today that Teruko Miller, 29, of Stanaford, West Virginia, pleaded guilty in federal court in Beckley to distributing heroin. Miller admitted that on January 29, 2014, she sold heroin to a person who was cooperating with law enforcement authorities. The drug deal took place on Stanaford Road in Beckley, West Virginia.

Miller faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1,000,000 fine. United States District Judge Irene C. Berger has scheduled Miller’s sentencing hearing for September 18, 2014.

The Beckley/Raleigh County Drug and Violent Crime Unit conducted the investigation.

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 and opiates. The United States 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.
