FAYETTEVILLE, WV (LOOTPRESS) – A Richwood woman has been sentenced to prison on charges relating to intended delivery of methamphetamine.
As reported by the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney of Fayette County, on January 22, 2023, a vehicle in which Gillion was the passenger was pulled over on Route 19 in Oak Hill, Fayette County.
Officers obtained permission from the owner of the vehicle to conduct a search, and upon doing so discovered approximately 27 grams of what was later determined by the West Virginia State Police lab to methamphetamine. Gillion admitted to being in possession of the substances found when questioned by officers.
Fayette County Prosecuting Attorney Anthony Ciliberti Jr. reports that on January 31, 2022, Jozet L. Gillion – 45 years old of Richwood, WV – was sentenced by Chief Judge Paul M. Blake Jr. to 2 – 30 years in prison for possession of methamphetamine with the intent to deliver – a felony offense.
Due to Gillion’s having incurred multiple drug-related felony convictions prior to sentencing, Judge Blake doubled what would typically be a 1 to 15-year sentence.
Gillion pled guilty to the felony possession with intent charge on October 21, 2022, and must serve at least two years in prison before potentially becoming eligible for parole.
This case was investigated by the Oak Hill Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Sarah F. Smith.
