CHARLESTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Mike Stuart announced that two Charleston men have been sentenced to prison for their roles in a methamphetamine conspiracy in 2017.  Michael Ginther and Travis Thomas were sentenced to 72 and 87 months in prison, respectively. 

 “Yet another network of meth traffickers dismantled,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart.  “We’re taking down drug dealers and putting them behind bars for lengthy prison stays.  Excellent work by my team and our law enforcement partners.” 

The investigation involved numerous controlled purchases of methamphetamine from the defendants involved in the conspiracy between June 2017 and September 2017.  Three other members of the conspiracy were sentenced to prison last week.  Melody Legg was sentenced to 120 months, Timothy Boggs to 24 months, and William Naylor to 36 months. 

This investigation was the result of a joint effort by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Violent Crime and Drug Task Force West, and the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department STOP Team.  Assistant United States Attorney Stephanie S. Taylor handled the prosecutions.  United States District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin imposed the sentences.
