Beckley Heroin Dealer Sentenced In Federal Court In Beckley

BECKLEY, W.Va. – United States Attorney Booth Goodwin announced today that a Beckley man was sentenced in federal court for selling heroin.  Jason Kaylor, 31,  was sentenced to eight months in prison.  Kaylor previously pled guilty in July of 2014, to selling heroin to a person cooperating with law enforcement authorities.    The drug deal took place on Cunningham Avenue in Stanaford, West Virginia. 

This case was investigated by the Beckley Raleigh County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force and is being prosecuted under the Beckley Pill Initiative directed by the United States Attorney’s Office.   This case is part of an ongoing effort led by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of West Virginia to combat the illicit sale and misuse of prescription drugs and heroin.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively pursuing and shutting down illegal pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of pills and heroin in communities across the Southern District. 

Defendant was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Irene C. Berger.
