Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

Son guilty of selling drugs for father

Christopher Holley, 24, of Gallagher pleaded guilty before United States District Judge John T. Copenhaver Jr. to the distribution of Oxycontin pills. He admitted his involvement in a Paint Creek-area Oxycontin ring that was led by his father, James Robert Holley, according to court records.

The younger man was recruited by his father to join the conspiracy in 2007 and distributed approximately 2,400 pills in six months. He could be sentenced to up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, James Holley obtained pills from Detroit and elsewhere. Already sentenced to prison in connection with the conspiracy were Charles Coiner, George Breckenridge, Terrance Haliburton and Nehemiah Lujoh Allen Griggs. The group sold thousands of Oxycontin pills in Kanawha County over a period of seven years.

This is tragic but they are dealing in legal heroin. Yes, OxyContin is legal heroin. Drug dealers need to be punished but also the sources of the drugs.
