CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Wyoming County couple was sentenced to a total of 17 years in federal prison on Wednesday for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and money laundering.
Christopher Brooks, 36, and Jennifer Brooks, 29, both of Glen Fork, pleaded guilty to the charges in February, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin.
U.S. District Judge Irene Berger sentenced Christopher Brooks to 10 years and his wife to seven years in prison.
According to the release, between March 2010 and April 2012, the couple received at least 130 packages in the mail from Tampa, Fla., that contained around 17,000 pills. The couple deposited at least $300,000 cash into a bank account in exchange for the pills, the release states.
Last month, in a related case, Keith Keiffer, 32, of Calvin, was sentenced to four years in prison for his role in the scheme. Police said he also received packages in the mail of oxycodone from Florida.
