A Nicholas County pill dealer was sentenced Monday to eight years in federal prison for his role in an oxycodone distribution conspiracy.
Carlos Copen, also known as “Jasper,” 23, of Richwood previously pleaded guilty in June to aiding and abetting the distribution of oxycodone, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin’s Office.
On May 31, 2011, Copen sold oxycodone pills to a confidential informant working in cooperation with the Central West Virginia Drug Task Force. The illegal pill transaction took place at Copen’s Nicholas residence.
Copen also participated in numerous other illegal pill transactions in and around Nicholas County.
