CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Two Charleston men were sentenced Tuesday in federal court on drug charges.
Eric Wiseman, 31, and Kermit Boyce, 31, were sentenced on oxycodone charges.
Wiseman was sentenced to seven years in prison. Boyce was sentenced to four years in prison.
Both defendants admitted that from December 2009 until December 21, 2010, they conspired with each other to distribute a quantity of oxycodone pills in and around Charleston.
Boyce and Wiseman further admitted to traveling together to Detroit to obtain oxycodone pills for distribution in West Virginia.
On December 2, 2010, law enforcement officers conducted a traffic stop of the defendants’ vehicle and found 1390 30-milligram oxycodone pills, 90 80-milligram oxycodone pills and 371 40-milligram oxymorphone pills, which they planned to sell.
Additionally, during the course of the conspiracy, the defendants obtained at least 1,500 80-milligram oxycodone pills and 1,500 30-milligram oxycodone pills.
Wiseman agreed to forfeit $30,000 as gross proceeds from the conspiracy.
