DETROIT MAN SENTENCED TO 90 MONTHS IN PRISON FOR HEROIN DISTRIBUTION

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Charles M. Leverett, 30, of Detroit, was sentenced yesterday to 90 months in prison by United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers for distribution of heroin.  Leverett previously pleaded guilty in February.  The defendant admitted that on October 20, 2011, he met an undercover law enforcement agent at a prearranged location in Huntington to complete a heroin transaction.  The defendant subsequently sold 22.5 grams of heroin to the informant in exchange for $3100.  Leverett also admitted that he sold quantities of heroin on three different occasions to an undercover law enforcement agent. 

The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Huntington Police Department conducted the investigation.  Assistant United States Attorney Gregory McVey handled the prosecution.
