A Charleston, West Virginia resident has admitted in federal court to dealing heroin in his community.

Ricky Williams, 23, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Charleston to selling heroin to an individual working as a confidential informant for the Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team in September. Williams also said he sold heroin to the same informant on two other occasions.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said Williams faces up to 20 years in prison at sentencing, which is set for Oct. 23.

This case was investigated by MDENT. Assistant U.S. Attorney Monica D. Coleman is in charge of the prosecution.
