CLARKSBURG -

The owner of two shops that sold illegal bath salts has pleaded guilty to federal charges and could face up to 30 years in prison.

Forty-eight-year-old Jeffrey Paglia appeared Monday before U.S. Magistrate John Kaull in Clarksburg.

Paglia pleaded guilty to one count of drug conspiracy and one count of structuring monetary transactions to evade reporting requirements.

He also agreed to forfeit property including a dozen real estate parcels, five vehicles and several bank accounts.

In exchange, prosecutors will drop additional charges and agreed not to prosecute Paglia's girlfriend, identified in court documents by the initials M.C.

Two employees of Paglia's "Hot Stuff and Cool Things" stores have pleaded guilty to a drug conspiracy charge and await sentencing, but a third, John Skruck, is still headed for trial in February.
