HUNTINGTON WOMAN SENTENCED TO 18 MONTHS IMPRISONMENT FOR SELLING CRACK COCAINE
Huntington, W.Va. – Cory Lynn McCourt was sentenced today in federal court in Huntington by Chief U.S. District Judge Robert C. Chambers to 18 months imprisonment for possession with intent to deliver cocaine base, more commonly known as crack cocaine. McCourt had previously pleaded guilty on October 7, 2013.
In May of 2010, Huntington Police responded to a domestic violence call at McCourt’s home at 1332 Huntington Avenue, Huntington, West Virginia, which she shared with Brandon Golson. While talking to McCourt at the door, police officers observed a tan chunky substance lying on her couch which appeared to be crack cocaine. McCourt admitted the crack cocaine belonged to her and that she had been selling crack since January of 2010.
Golson was sentenced on January 27, 2014, to seven years and three months in federal prison for his role in the distribution of heroin, crack and oxycodone pills in the Huntington area.
