For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of West Virginia

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Mike Stuart announced that a Nitro man was sentenced for a federal drug crime.  Jon Green, Jr., 49, of Nitro, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Joseph Goodwin to 40 months in federal prison for distribution of methamphetamine.  Stuart commended the work of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in the case.

“Meth is flooding Kanawha County,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart.  “But DEA and our other law enforcement partners are pushing back, identifying and investigating meth dealers, resulting in convictions that carry stiff penalties.”

Green pled guilty in August admitting that on August 30th, and again on September 1st and 14th, 2017, he sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant working with the Drug Enforcement Administration. The transactions occurred at defendant’s 7th Street residence in Nitro.
