Wheeling man pleads guilty to heroin, cocaine trafficking

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA – Mark Louis Flint, II, 30, of Wheeling, pled guilty today to heroin and cocaine trafficking, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced.

Flint conspired with other individuals to possess and distribute heroin and cocaine in October 2015 in Ohio County, West Virginia.

Flint pled guilty today to one count of “Conspiracy to Distribute Schedule I and Schedule II Controlled Substances.” He faces up to 20 years in prison 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 Randy Bernard prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Ohio Valley Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.

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