Boone County man sentenced on drug charge

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Booth Goodwin announced today that Terry L. Daugherty, 50, of Nellis, Boone County, West Virginia, was sentenced to 32 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release.

In November 2013, Daugherty pleaded guilty to arranging the delivery of a package containing methamphetamine to resident of Chris Curry. Curry pleaded guilty to agreeing to the scheme with the reward of receiving a small amount of the drugs, and is scheduled to be sentenced in March 2015.

On March 14, 2014, the package was delivered to Curry’s residence by undercover police officers, who had intercepted it in transit. After Curry accepted the package, officers executed a search warrant for the residence and retrieved the package. Curry provided a statement detailing his involvement with Daugherty, who admitted the package was his when questioned by law enforcement.

United States District Judge Thomas E. Johnston imposed the sentence.

The case was investigated by the West Virginia State Police and Drug Enforcement Administration. Assistant United States Attorney John J. Frail handled the prosecution.
