CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Jacob White, 26, of Morgantown, West Virginia, was sentenced to 30 months in prison for distributing cocaine, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced today.

White will serve the 30 months prison term immediately following an unrelated state sentence for which he is currently incarcerated. He was also ordered to forfeit $1551.00.

White pled guilty in June 2014 to one count of “Distribution of Cocaine Hydrochloride” after an investigation by the West Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigations revealed that he sold powder cocaine in Monongalia County in October 2012.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda Wesley prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

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