Berkeley County woman sentenced for drug charge

MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Shannon L. Keiffer, of Martinsburg, West Virginia, was sentenced today to five years probation for a drug charge, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Keiffer, age 34, pled guilty to one count of “Distribution of Heroin” in April 2019. Keiffer admitted to selling heroin in July 2018 in Berkeley County.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy D. Helman prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Eastern Panhandle Drug & Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated. 

The investigation was funded by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program (OCDETF). The OCDETF program supplies critical federal funding and coordination that allows federal and state agencies to work together to successfully identify, investigate, and prosecute major interstate and international drug trafficking organizations and other criminal enterprises.

Chief U.S. District Judge Gina M. Groh presided.
