CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Amanda Lilly Daniels, 26, of Detroit, Michigan, was sentenced to 41 months in prison for her role in transporting prescription painkillers from Detroit, Michigan to Clarksburg, West Virginia, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced today.

An investigation by the Greater Harrison County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, revealed that Daniels would travel from Michigan to West Virginia with hundreds of oxycodone pills. The pills would then be sold to a series of associates for redistribution in the Clarksburg area.

As part of the sentence, Daniels will also forfeit her interest in two firearms, nine rounds of ammunition, and $5,947.00. She will be given credit for time served since December 2013. Daniels pled guilty in March 2014 to one count of "Possession with Intent to Distribute Oxtcodone."

Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn Morgan prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

U.S. District Judge Irene M. Keeley presided.
