Monongalia County man sentenced for drug distribution

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Codey Bonnette, of Morgantown, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 41 months incarceration for drug distribution, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Bonnette, age 26, pled guilty to one count of “Distribution of Oxycodone” in October 2017. Bonnette admitted to selling oxycodone in Monongalia County in September 2015.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda E. Wesley prosecuted the cases on behalf of the government. The Mon Metro Drug and 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.

Senior U.S. District Judge Irene M. Keeley presided.
