Shady Spring women sentenced for selling oxycodone

A Shady Spring woman was sentenced to one year in federal prison for selling oxycodone.

Phyllis Morris, 38, pleaded guilty in January and was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Court Judge Irene C. Berger, according to a release from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin.

Morris admitted that in March 2013, she sold oxycodone pills to a confidential informant who was working with the Beckley Police Department Drug Unit. The drug deal took place at a restaurant and bar in Shady Spring.

The case was investigated by the Beckley/Raleigh County Drug and Violent Crime Unit.
