A Fayette County woman has pleaded guilty to a federal drug charge.
Jessica Lynn Hall, 29, of Fayetteville, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and quantities of heroin and fentanyl.
Hall admitted she sold heroin and fentanyl in January to an informant on three occasions at her Deepwater Mountain Road residence in Fayetteville.
On Jan. 15, members of the CWVDTF executed a search warrant at the residence and seized 446 grams of methamphetamine, 89.59 grams of heroin, 90.82 grams of fentanyl, and three handguns.
Hall’s boyfriend, Jason Treadway, 38, was also charged with distribution of heroin and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, heroin, and fentanyl. His trial is scheduled for July 22.
Hall faces five to 40 years in federal prison when she is sentenced Sept. 11.
U.S. Attorney Mike Stuart commended the investigative efforts of the Central West Virginia Drug Task Force (CWVDTF).
“Meth. Heroin. Fentanyl and guns. All powerful and deadly,” Stuart said in the release. “Great work by the Central West Virginia Drug Task Force in putting an end to Hall’s drug dealing.”
Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua C. Hanks is handling the prosecution. U.S. District Judge Irene C. Berger presided over the plea hearing.
