Woman sentenced to 18 months for role in oxycodone distribution

CLARKSBURG — Marjorie Sue Webster, of Maidsville, was sentenced Tuesday to 18 months incarceration for her role in distributing oxycodone, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Webster, 24, pled guilty to unlawful use of communication facility in January. She admitted to using a phone to assist others in distributing oxycodone in March 2017 in Monongalia County.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda E. Wesley prosecuted the case on behalf of the government. The Mon Valley Drug and Violent Crime Drug Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, led the investigation. The task force consists of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Monongalia County Sheriff’s Office, Morgantown Police Department, the Star City Police Department, the West Virginia State Police, the WVU Police Department, the Granville Police Department and the Monongalia County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

The investigation was funded in part by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program (OCDETF). The OCDETF program supplies critical federal funding and coordination that allows federal and state agencies to work together to identify, investigate and prosecute major interstate and international drug trafficking organizations and other criminal enterprises.
