Fayette couple sentenced for selling oxycodone

A Fayette County couple was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Charleston for selling oxycodone.

Gary Stover, 34, of Kincaid, was sentenced to three years and one month by Judge John T. Copenhaver Jr. Stover had previously pleaded guilty in November 2012 to oxycodone distribution.

Stover admitted that on March 21, 2012, he sold three 30-milligram oxycodone pills to an individual cooperating with law enforcement. He further admitted that he is responsible for distributing a total of approximately 1,000 30-milligram pills.

Stover’s co-defendant, Jamie L. Foster, 26, was sentenced to three months in federal prison, followed by nine months of home confinement for aiding and abetting the distribution of oxycodone.

Foster previously pleaded guilty in October 2012. She admitted that on April 16, 2012, she sold two 30-milligram oxycodone pills to an individual cooperating with law enforcement.  

Foster and Stover shared a residence near Kincaid at the time the illegal pill transactions occurred.

Stover and Foster are the latest defendants to be sentenced in connection with an ongoing drug investigation in Fayette County. Earlier this month, Kenneth James Taylor, 32, of Page, was sentenced to five years for oxycodone distribution. In January, Gerald Wayne Hopkins, 52, of Fayetteville was sentenced to three years probation for cocaine distribution and Michael Terry Coleman, 48, of Page, was sentenced to two years in prison for selling oxycodone.
