WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Nelda K. White, 55, of Hundred, West Virginia, was sentenced to twelve months and one day in prison for distributing marijuana, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced today.

White pled guilty in June 2014 to one count of "Conspiracy to Distribute Marijuana" after a West Virginia State Police investigation revealed that White was receiving shipments of marijuana from a source in California and reselling the marijuana in the Hundred, West Virginia area.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve Vogrin prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

Chief U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey presided.
