HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - A federal prosecutor says a Huntington landlord who accepted illegal drugs as payment for rent has been sentenced to three years and 10 months in prison.
U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says 46-year-old Jerry A. Lowe previously pleaded guilty to distribution of oxycodone. He was sentenced Monday.
According to Goodwin, Lowe told police he typically received heroin or prescription painkillers as rent payment from two convicted felons. Lowe also bought oxycodone pills from another resident of the apartment complex, and sold at least 10 pills a month for about two years.
