CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Khareem Sampson, of Morgantown, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 188 months incarceration for distributing methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell announced.
Sampson, age 30, pled guilty to one count of “Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine” in April 2019. Sampson admitted to distributing methamphetamine in July 2018 in Monongalia County.

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.
