CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A Charleston man who sold crack cocaine to a police informant recently pleaded guilty to federal drug charges, according to information from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin’s office.

Calvin Lee Boswell, also known as “Boo” and “Big Boy,” 23, pleaded guilty Monday to seven counts of distribution of crack cocaine. On three separate occasions in October 2011, Boswell sold crack cocaine to a confidential informant working in cooperation with the Special Enforcement Unit of the Charleston Police Department.

Additionally, Boswell sold crack cocaine to a confidential informant working for the Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team (MDENT) on Nov. 26, 2012. The defendant also completed three crack cocaine transactions in December 2012. The crack cocaine transactions were completed in and around Charleston.

Boswell faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine on each count when he is sentenced Sept. 17 by U.S. District Judge John T. Copenhaver, Jr.
