Michigan Man Sentenced to 15 Months in Prison for Drug Crime

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Mike Stuart announced today that Terry Alan Blackmon, Jr., 34, of Michigan, was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison for distribution of heroin.

“Another out of state heroin dealer has been sentenced to prison for peddling poisons in Huntington,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart.  “We have maintained our focus on ridding our communities of drug dealers like Blackmon.”

Blackmon previously pled guilty and admitted that on September 24, 2019, he distributed approximately 2 grams of heroin to a confidential informant.  This distribution of heroin occurred in controlled buy at a residence at 523 6th Street in Huntington.

Stuart commended the investigative efforts of the FBI’s Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) Task Force, the Cabell County Sheriff’s Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the West Virginia State Police.

United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers imposed the sentence.  Assistant United States Attorney Ryan A. Keefe handled the prosecution.
