CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – A Marion County man has been sentenced for his role in a cocaine and heroin distribution ring.

U.S. District Judge Thomas Kleeh sentenced Andrew Parker, 31 of Mannington, to five years of federal probation, with the first 180 days of the sentence being on home confinement, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell announced.
