Two illegal aliens admit to drug charge

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Two men in the United States illegally have admitted to drug charges, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Hsun Jung Chang, age 29, and Shougi Li, age 24, each pled guilty to one count of “Conspiracy to Possess with the Intent to Distribute and Distribute Marijuana.” The men admitted to possessing marijuana in Ohio County in May 2018.

Each defendant faces up to five years incarceration and a fine of up to $250,000. 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 Stephen L. Vogrin is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The West Virginia State Police and the Ohio County Sheriff’s Office investigated.

U.S. Magistrate Judge James E. Seibert presided.
