Gov. Tomblin's Brother Pleads Guilty to Drug Charge

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The brother of West Virginia's governor faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal drug charge.
 
U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says 50-year-old Carl Tomblin of Chapmanville pleaded guilty Tuesday to distribution of oxymorphone. Tomblin's sentencing is set for June 25.
 
Goodwin says Tomblin sold the prescription painkiller to a confidential informant on five occasions in December 2013.
 
Tomblin is the brother of Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin.
 
When Carl Tomblin was charged in February, the governor said his brother was dealing with drug addiction and needed help, but must be held accountable for his actions.

I'm glad he got no 'special' treatment. But I doubt he'll serve the whole 20 years and will more than likely get a "pardon." Politicians LOVE that "pardon" thingy.
