Huber, age 30, pled guilty to one count of “Aiding and Abetting Distribution of Cocaine Hydrochloride” in September 2019. Huber admitted to selling cocaine in July 2018 in Jefferson County.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lara K. Omps-Botteicher, Special Assistant U.S. Attorney C. Lydia Lehman, also with the Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, and Assistant U.S Attorney Timothy D. Helman, prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.
