Drug Conspiracy Charge

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA - A 35-year old Deland, Florida, resident was sentenced on May 13, 2013, in United States District Court in Wheeling by Judge Frederick P. Stamp, Jr.

United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced that: JAMIE L. JOYNER was sentenced to 120 months imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release.
