Three found guilty of drug dealing offenses in Fayette County

FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WOAY) – Three West Virginia men have been found guilty of charges related to drug dealing.

Carver and Gray also were found guilty of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute meth.

Grimmett was conviced of a misdemeanor conspiracy.

Grimmett could spend up to 15 years in jail. Carver and Gray face a maximum of 20 years.

Fayette County Prosecuting Attorney Anthony Ciliberti prosecuted the case.
