HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Two Columbus men pleaded guilty to federal charges involving a drug conspiracy in Huntington, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin’s office.

Kevin Luthor Robinson, also known as “KK,” 44, and Jermaine D. Dickerson, also known as “Chris” and “G,” 36, both pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute heroin and 28 grams or more of crack cocaine.

Robinson and Dickerson admitted that during the fall of 2010 until July 2011, they conspired together to transport and distribute heroin and 28 grams or more of crack in and around the Huntington area.

Both men admitted that they arranged frequent trips to Columbus to purchase heroin and cocaine. The drugs were then transported to Huntington by the defendants. Robinson and Dickerson also admitted that during the scheme, they converted powder cocaine into crack cocaine for distribution.

The men admitted that they worked with multiple co-conspirators and used several Huntington residences to store, prepare and package illegal drugs during the conspiracy.

Robinson and Dickerson further admitted that they directed co-conspirators to set up and complete numerous illegal drug buys.

Both men face up to 40 years in prison and a $5 million fine when they are sentenced on March 18, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Robert C. Chambers.
