|A Gilmer County woman admitted to a federal drug charge, the United States Attorney's Office announced on Thursday.|
Tina Hart, 40, of Glenville pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful use of a communication facility, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. Hart admitted to using a phone to distribute a controlled substance in April of 2018 in Monongalia County.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said Hart faces up to four years of incarceration and a fine of up to $250,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.
The Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and
the Mon Metro Drug & Violent Crimes Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated this case. The United States Marshal Service assisted.
