Pennsylvania man admits to drug charge

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Kevin J. Washington, Jr., of Glenolden, Pennsylvania, has admitted to a drug distribution charge, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Washington, age 30, pled guilty to one count of “Distribution of Oxycodone.”  Washington admitted to selling oxycodone in Ohio County in February 2016.

Washington faces up to 20 years incarceration and a fine of up to $1,000,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert H. McWilliams, Jr., is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Ohio Valley Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated. 

Senior U.S. District Judge Frederick P. Stamp., Jr. presided.
