CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA — United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced that an investigation by the Mon Valley Drug Task Force has led to an indictment being returned by a federal grand jury in Clarksburg.

ANTWAN GREGORY, age 32, of Tallahassee, Florida; KENNETH GREGORY, age 26, of Columbus, Ohio; and, JENNIFER FERRARO WOODSON, age 31, of Morgantown, West Virginia, were named in a seven-count Indictment charging them with “Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute and to Distribute Cocaine and Crack Cocaine.”

ANTWAN and KENNETH GREGORY each face a total of six counts and WOODSON faces a total of seven counts.

In addition to the conspiracy charge, other charges include “Distribution of Cocaine and Crack Cocaine,” “Distribution of Cocaine and Crack Cocaine within 1,000 Feet of West Virginia University,” and, “Use and Carry of a Firearm in Relation to a Drug-Trafficking Offense.”

The defendants each face up to twenty years in prison on the conspiracy and distribution charges; up to forty years in prison on the protected location charges; and, a mandatory term of five years in prison on the firearms charge.

This case will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Zelda E. Wesley and was investigated by the Mon Valley Drug & Violent Crime Task Force, consisting of officers from the Morgantown Police Department, the Monongalia County Sheriff’s Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

All of the charges contained in the above-referenced indictments are merely accusations and not evidence of guilt, and each defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the criminal history, if any, of the defendant.
