Judge sentences Michigan man on oxycodone charge


A judge sentenced a Michigan man for oxycodone distribution in Monongalia County.

Sean Phillips, Jr., 26, of Eastpointe, Michigan, will spend 18 months in prison for oxycodone distribution, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.

Phillips pleaded guilty in November 2018 to one count of aiding and abetting distribution of oxycodone.  Phillips admitted to selling oxycodone in March 2017 in Monongalia County, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The Mon Valley Drug and Violent Crime Drug Task Force, a HIDTA-funded initiative, investigated.

The investigation was funded by the federal Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program.  The OCDETF program supplies critical federal funding and coordination that allows federal and state agencies to work together to successfully identify, investigate and prosecute major interstate and international drug trafficking organizations and other criminal enterprises.
