WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA —United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced that:

TONISHA WOODS, age 34, of Fairmont, West Virginia, was named in a three-count Indictment charging her with the “Distribution of Morphine.” If convicted, WOODS faces up to 20 years imprisonment and a $1,000,000 fine on each count. This case will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Zelda E. Wesley and was investigated by the Three Rivers Task Force, consisting of officers from the Fairmont Police Department and the Fairmont State University Police Department.

All of the charges contained in the above-referenced indictments are merely accusations and not evidence of guilt, and each defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
