MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Cathy Ann Corbin, 50, of Augusta, West Virginia, was convicted for her role in producing methamphetamine, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced today.

During an investigation by the Potomac Highlands Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, Corbin was discovered in possession of pseudoephedrine in January 2013 near Romney, West Virginia. She admitted her role in the manufacture of methamphetamine when she pled guilty to one count of “Possession of Pseudoephedrine to be used in Manufacture of Methamphetamine.”

Corbin faces up to twenty years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.00. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jarod Douglas prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert W. Trumble presided.
