Jefferson City Man Indicted for Distributing Heroin

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Jefferson City, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for distributing heroin.

Brian Boykin, also known as “Denormus Okain” and “B,” 36, of Jefferson City, was charged in a three-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Jefferson City.

Today's indictment alleges that Boykin distributed heroin on two separate occasions in Cole County, Mo., on Nov. 20 and Nov. 21, 2013. Boykin is also charged with one count of possessing heroin with the intent to distribute on Feb. 13, 2014.

Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Supervisory Assistant U.S. Attorney Lawrence E. Miller. It was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Jefferson City, Mo., Police Department.
