OHIO MAN SENTENCED TO 120 MONTHS IN PRISON ON CRACK COCAINE CHARGE

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Phillip Edward Craig, 29, of Toledo, OH, was sentenced today to 120 months in prison by United States District Judge Robert C.

The Huntington Violent Crime and Drug Task Force conducted the investigation.  Assistant United States Attorney Gregory McVey handled the prosecution.
