WHEELING, WV – United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced today that KYMBERLY MULL, 44 years of age of Wheeling, WV, was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison for her role in a drug trafficking conspiracy.
In June, MULL pleaded guilty to the offense of “Conspiracy to Distribute Schedule I and Schedule II Controlled Substances.” MULL agreed that between September of 2011 and February of 2012 she conspired with others to sell heroin, cocaine, and oxycodone pills. MULL admitted to delivering or aiding the delivery of these drugs to undercover officers and confidential informants on at least twelve occasions during a six month period.
The investigation leading to the charges included extensive surveillance, controlled purchases of narcotics, executions of search warrants, and seizures of narcotics, automobiles, and United States Currency. The source state for most of the heroin referenced in the Mull indictment was Pennsylvania, while the pain pills came from Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia.
As part of her sentence, MULL must make payment of $11,000 to the Ohio Valley Drug Task Force as reimbursement for funds that were paid to her during the controlled purchases of narcotics. She must also pay a money judgment of $50,000 to the United States of America as well as forfeit a 2011 Chevrolet Corvette, a 2005 Hummer H2, and a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab. She will be placed onto three years of supervised release after she has served the prison sentence.
