Charleston,  W.Va. – United States Attorney Booth Goodwin announced that Jennifer McClure, 31, of Chelyan, West Virginia, was sentenced today in federal court in Charleston to time served from November 25, 2014 to the present, followed by three years of supervised release.  McClure previously pled guilty in December of 2014, admitting that she sold heroin to a confidential informant working with the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department. The drug deal took place at McClure’s home on Firefly Lane in Chelyan.

The case was investigated by the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department and was prosecuted as 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 heroin and prescription drugs.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office, joined by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to aggressively pursuing and shutting down illegal heroin and pill trafficking, eliminating open air drug markets, and curtailing the spread of opiate painkillers and heroin in communities across the Southern District.

Assistant United States Attorney John Frail is responsible for the prosecution.
