BECKLEY - A Wyoming county couple is sentenced on drug charges...
Christopher Brooks, 36 and his wife, Jennifer Brooks, 29, both from Glen Fork were sentenced Wednesday in Federal Court in Beckley. They pled guilty in February to charges of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and money laundering. Both were sentenced to time in federal prison, Christopher for ten years and Jennifer for seven years.
The charges stemmed from the receipt of at least 130 packages by mail containing approximately 17,000 oxycodone tablets. They also deposited at least 300-thousand dollars cash into various bank accounts in exchange for those tablets.
