Huntington cocaine dealer sentenced to federal prison

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Booth Goodwin announced today that Curtis Rollins, 34, of Huntington, was sentenced to eight months in federal prison.

In October 2014, Rollins pleaded guilty to using a communication device to facilitate a drug crime.  He admitted that on Dec. 31, 2013, he made a call to known drug dealer Kenneth Newman, during which he stated he had two people needing something. He made multiple calls that day, one in which he requested “two extra things,” referring to cocaine he intended to provide to someone else.

Chief United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers imposed the sentence.

The Drug Enforcement Administration and Huntington Police Department were in charge of the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Greg McVey was in charge of the prosecution.
