Harrison County woman sentenced for role in a methamphetamine distribution operation

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Faith Martin, of Shinnston, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 41 months incarceration for her involvement in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Martin, age 20, pled guilty to one count of “Distribution of Methamphetamine” in March 2019. Martin admitted to selling methamphetamine in Harrison County in August 2018.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda E. Wesley prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Greater Harrison Drug & Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated. 

The investigation was funded in part 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.

U.S. District Judge Thomas S. Kleeh presided.
