Monongalia County woman sentenced for drug distribution

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Annamae Martin, of Westover, West Virginia, was sentenced today to 12 months incarceration for drug distribution, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Martin, age 32, pled guilty to one count of “Unlawful Use of Communication Facility” in October 2017. Martin admitted to using a phone to distribute and assist in a conspiracy to distribute oxycodone. The crime occurred in Monongalia County in March 2017.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda E. Wesley prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Mon Metro Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated. 

The investigation was funded 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.
