WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA - A 35-year old Deland, Florida, resident was sentenced on May 13, 2013, in United States District Court in Wheeling by Judge Frederick P. Stamp, Jr.
United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced that: JAMIE L. JOYNER was sentenced to 120 months imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release. JOYNER entered a plea of guilty on January 3, 2013, to “Conspiracy to Distribute Schedule II Controlled Substances” from March of 2012 to September 12, 2012, for his role in Florida to West Virginia pill ring. In a joint investigation, involving the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department, the Moundsville Police Department, the DEA, United State Postal Service, and the West Virginia State Police, beginning in the spring of 2012, agents received information that an apartment in Marshall County was being used to distribute oxycodone pills being brought to West Virginia from Florida, typically via rental vehicles. The Court also ordered the forfeiture of $2,096 in drug proceeds.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney John C. Parr.
