Michigan man admits to oxycodone distribution
CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Christopher Lloyd, of Detroit, Michigan, has admitted to an oxycodone distribution charge, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.
Lloyd, also known as “Red,” age 33, pled guilty to one count of “Aiding and Abetting Distribution of Oxycodone.” Lloyd admitted to selling oxycodone in November 2015 in Monongalia County.
Lloyd faces up to 20 years incarceration and a fine of up to $1,000,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda E. Wesley is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Mon Valley Drug and Violent Crime Drug Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.
The investigation was funded by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program (OCDETF). The OCDETF program supplies critical federal funding and coordination that allows federal and state agencies to work together to successfully identify, investigate, and prosecute major interstate and international drug trafficking organizations and other criminal enterprises.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael John Aloi presided.
