HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A Huntington woman who participated in an oxycodone and heroin distribution conspiracy pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal drug charge, according to information from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin's office.
Kimberly Gayle Hamlett, 39, pleaded guilty to distribution of oxycodone before Chief U.S. Judge Robert C. Chambers in Huntington.
From at least 2011 through Aug. 8, 2013, Hamlett participated in a conspiracy to sell oxycodone pills and heroin. In May, Hamlett sold approximately one gram of heroin to a police informant in exchange for $200. The illegal heroin transaction took place near 16th Street and 6th Avenue in Huntington.
Hamlett told police that during the conspiracy, she provided residences for her associates to store and sell drugs. She also told police that firearms were kept at the residences.
Hamlett faces up to 20 years in federal prison when she is sentenced Feb. 24, 2014.
